Hi Teacher

Can you please help. I am trying to understand parts of speech, as I am self-teaching myself. Unfortunately, the book does not come with answers so I am not sure if I am right or wrong.

Name the part of speech of each word in bold?

  • In after years this brave act shall be remembered. (Adjective)

  • The boys followed after the girls. (Adverb)

  • Helen went first and I after. (Verb)

  • The evening was pleasant after the thunder storm had passed. (Conjunction)

  • My friend left the next day. (Adjective)

  • The conductor stood next the door. (Adverb) - also is this sentence written correctly.

  • In the queue my mother came next to auntie. (Adverb)

  • We made a round of the side-shows. (Noun)

  • The car whizzed round the corner. (Preposition)

  • The wheel whirled round. (Adverb)

  • The round carpet had a most unusual design. (Adjective)

  • I have not seen the tramp since. (Adverb)

  • The explorers have not been heard of since last month. (Adverb)

  • It is no use offering him money since he always refuses it. (Preposition)

Hello is anyone there - Re: Parts of Speech 2 (a new set of questions)

Helloooooooo

The website is on - but is anyone home.........

Surely, with the collective amount of brains subscribing to this site there must be someone who can provide an opinion to my questions.
