1.2 The word classes you will focus on
This course won’t cover all the word classes in the same detail. You’ll start with nouns, verbs and adjectives. In the second half of the course you’ll look at how these major word classes are combined into sentences and texts. This is done using smaller classes of more grammatical words, like pronouns (they or you), prepositions (in and under) and conjunctions (and or but), which you’ll be introduced to in Weeks 5–8.
