Change words from adjectives to verbs, from nouns to adjective Use prefixes and suffixes to change word forms. We may already know what verbs, nouns,
adjectives, adverbs, prepositions and articles are but we will extend
this knowledge and discover how flexible words can be.
Words that are usually nouns may become verbs and visa versa.
A word's part of speech is related to the function of that word in a particular sentence,
so to identify parts of speech we need to learn more about the structure of sentences.
In the sentence "I saw a horse duck to get under a low bridge"
the word "duck" is a verb and "horse" is a noun.
We can see this from the context.
The only other possibility would be that after the indefinite article "a"
we have a noun phrase "horse duck",
but there is no such noun phrase
and this would also lead to other problems in the sentence structure.
We could say "I saw something get under a bridge"
but not "I saw something to get under the bridge".
Here the infinitive verb "to get" expresses purpose or reason.
In unit one we will learn about word forms in sentences
and learn about prefixes and suffixes that
change word forms in specific ways.
Eg: -ABLE makes a verb into an adjective, meaning that this verb is possible.
