Speech English

What Are the Parts of Speech?

Part of speech is the common name for a word class--a category into which words are placed according to the work they do in a sentence. Here you'll be introduced to the eight traditional parts of speech.

Learning the names of the parts of speech probably won't make you witty, wealthy, or wise. In fact, learning just the names of the parts of speech won't even make you a better writer. But you will gain a basic understanding of the English language, which will help you follow the other lessons here

As you study the table at the bottom of the page, keep in mind that only interjections ("Yes!") have a habit of standing alone (or alongside complete sentences). The other parts of speech--nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives adverbs, prepositions, and conjunctions--come in many varieties and may appear just about anywhere in a sentence. To know for sure what part of speech a word is, we have to look not only at the word itself but also at its meaning, position, and use in a sentence.

For example, in the first sentence below, work functions as a noun; in the second sentence, a verb; and in the third sentence, an adjective:

    Bosco showed up for work two hours late.
    [The noun work is the thing Bosco shows up for.]
    He will have to work until midnight.
    [The verb work is the action he must perform.]
    His work permit expires next month.
    [The attributive noun work modifies the noun permit.]

Don't let this variety of meanings and uses confuse or discourage you. Keep in mind that learning the names of the basic parts of speech is just one way to understand how sentences are put together.

Now review the parts of speech listed below, and for each one see if you can provide examples of your own. (Click on the term for more detailed explanations and additional examples.) You will grow more familiar with the parts of speech as you practice using them in other lessons on this site, such as Basic Sentence Structures.

NOTE: Though some traditional grammars have treated articles (the, a[n]) as a distinct part of speech, contemporary grammars more often include articles in the category of determiners.

 Speech English About Heroes Day :

Assalamu’alaikum Wr.Wb.
The honorable juries, teachers, committees and all the participants.  It is a great honor for me to join this English speech contest.
In the name of Allah, the most Merciful and the most Gracious
All praises be to Allah SWT, the lord of the world, the master of the day after, the creator of everything in this universe.
Peace and Salutation be upon our prophet Muhammad SAW, who has brought us from the darkness into the brightness and guided us into the right way of life.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
In this good opportunity, I would like to deliver a speech entitled “Heroes’ Day”.
This speech aims at reminding us that the heroism, patriotism and nationalism are very important in developing our country. Without those attitudes, it is impossible for us to make our country survive.
Brothers and Sisters;
Every year we commemorate Heroes’ Day on 10th November. It is the reflection of our country in appreciating the history of Indonesian people in struggling against the colonialism. Heroes’ Day also shows that our founding fathers had sacrificed everything to build this country.
Heroes’ Day was taken from the history of the battle in Surabaya. It was a fighting of our people against Dutch and Allied forces due to the struggle of the Indonesian Independence. The peak of the battle was in November 1945. Allied Forces’ troops managed to conquer Surabaya, the second largest city in Indonesia, on behalf of Dutch. More than 100,000 people of Indonesia were involved on the battle against the Allied Forces that approximated more than 30,000 soldiers. At least 16.000 Indonesian people died, while the enemies lost 2,000 soldiers. The battle was the heaviest single battle of the revolution and became a national symbol of Indonesian resistance. Considered a heroic effort by Indonesians, the battle helped our people get international support for Indonesian independence. In memory of the battle, 10th November is then celebrated annually as Heroes’ Day.
Ladies and Gentlemen;
The battle in Surabaya was one of the battles happening in our country during the situation of the Indonesian independence. Other people from all  over Indonesia’s territory also did the similar thing. Our people fought against the colonialist to keep our independence. Our people struggled to build a free country. They sacrificed everything, including their blood and lives. They had dedicated their heroism, patriotism and nationalism for this country.
There is a quote: a great country is a country which appreciates all its heroes. We often hear about it. We know that without our heroes’ sacrifices, there would be no this country. The independence of Indonesia was not given by the colonialist. It was struggled by our founding fathers, by our heroes…
Wassalamualaikum Wr.Wb.

Speech English About Drugs :

Assalamualaikum Wr.Wb.

Honoriable ones the juries, the participant of English speech contest, and all audiences.

Before I begin to give a speech, I would like to invite you to thank to Allah the Almighty, Who has given us Mercy and Blessing, so we can meet together in this blessing place. And also I don't forget to deliver sholawat and salam to our prophet Muhammad SAW, Who has brought us from the darkness to the brightness, so we are always in the right way.

Ladies and gentlemen.

Today, in this gold oppurtunity, I would like to give a speech in front of you all about "Drugs"

I am sure you all already know, and may be better than me about what drugs is and what the advantages and disadvantages are. Drugs actually is a medicine for anaesthetize patients in surgery. But that perception was misapplied by some people.

Drugs have been misapplied by some people for a long time. Some people which use drugs beyond the medical treatment consider that drags can make them feel better when they facing some problems and for other reasons such as can make them feel easy to find new brilliant ideas or just for a pleasure.

I am sure you will never forget the newest accident in Tugu Tani, Jakarta, when a drugs user, Apriliani, drived her car with high speed and hit the pedestrians in a halte. It obviously proof that in the effect of drugs, hallucination of the drugs user is biger than other normal people. They cannot make a distinguish between the real world and the hallucination world and consider all things in arround them are like a dream and they was not real.

The effect of drugs is not only dangerous for drugs user it self, with it's big risks such as overdosis, HIV/AIDS and some  damage in our brain and mental, drugs also dangerous for the people in surronding us, such the example above. It opens our eyes that the usage of drugs beyond the medical treatments is profitless. Because drugs just lead us in the descruction for the user it self and for other people surronding.

Dear ladies and gentlemen

But it is so sad, if we hear many young generation consume the drugs such as Heroin, cokain, Koplo, dextron, extacy, marijuana , just to be drunk, to get enjoyment, to get satisfation, without think their future, they only think the temporary pleasure.

As moslems we have the guidance from the holy qur’an that drinking alcoholic drink is forbiden, and it is bad action, and despicable deed, as Allah Said in the holy quran : "ya ayyuhalladzina amanu innamal khomru walmaysir wal anshob wal azlam rijsummin amalisyton fajtanibuhu laalakum tuflihun." It means : "oh ye the believers actually alcoholic drink, gambling, and draw destiny is despicable from the evil’s action so avoid them, may be you will be the pleasure people.(almaidah verse : 90)"

Because the drugs or the alcoholic drink is so dangerous for our health, for our body, for our future. So we must keep a way from it. we must avoid it. Don’t try to consume it, don’t try to sell or buy it.

Those are what I can deliver to you at this moment, thank a lot for your attention and I ask forgiveness for my mistakes, and the last I say:
