Word classes: the map of the territory


This index will take you to the main guides to each of the major word classes in English.  Related guides are linked from those.  The subcategories are also linked here but only from the in-service guides.
The left-hand links in this diagram take you to the more complex and difficult in-service guides; the right-hand links take you to simpler, essential guides.

Click on the lighter coloured area that interests you.
At the end of each guide, there is a link to bring you back to this page.
