Adjectives are words that describe the attributes of a noun (i.e. a person or thing), such as 'beautiful' 'large' and 'blue'.
Adverbs are words that give more information about an action, such as 'well', 'then' and 'gently'.

Prepositions

In this overview, you'll understand how to use prepositions, which are words or groups of words that can show the place, position or time of a noun or pronoun.
In the phrase 'the lamp beside the television', 'beside' is the preposition because it describes the position of the lamp in relation to the television.

This basic overview teaches you the difference between nouns and pronouns. Nouns are descriptive words that can be either the subject or object of a verb (e.g. dog, table, glass) and pronouns are words used in place of nouns or noun phrases to describe the participants of the discourse (e.g. I, she, they).
