Transcript: Hello and welcome. In this lesson, I will teach you the seven rules that you need to know for using articles in English correctly. Articles are the words ‘a’, ‘an’, and ‘the’. There is a final quiz at the end of the lesson for you to test your understanding. OK, the first rule is about where to use ‘a’ and where to use ‘an’. So rule number one is use ‘a’ before a consonant sound, and ‘an’ before a vowel sound. So in all of these words – you see that they start with a consonant sound. Cat starts with /k/, dog starts with /d/, boy with /b/, girl with /g/, house with /h/ and tree with /t/. So we say ‘a cat’, ‘a dog’, ‘a boy’, ‘a girl’, ‘a house’, ‘a tree’ etc. Notice that in natural speech, we don’t say ‘a’, we say ‘uh’ – like ‘a cat’. In this next set of words, you see that, they all start with a vowel sound – apple starts with /ae/, engineer starts with /e/, ice-cream with /ai/, old with /o/, umbrella with /uh/. So we say ‘an apple’, ‘an engineer’, ‘an ice-cream cone’, ‘an old womman’, ‘an umbrella’ and so on. In speech, we don’t say ‘an’, we say /ən/. Let’s do a small exercise. You see ten items on the screen. For each one, I want you to say if you would use ‘a’ or ‘an’ before it. Stop the video, think about it, then play the video again and check. OK here are the answers. Did you get them all right? I want to focus on items number seven to ten because these are a little tricky. Number seven is ‘a university’ because even though ‘university’ starts with the letter ‘u’ the first sound of the word is not a vowel sound. We don’t say /ooniversity/. We say /yoo-nə- vər-si-ty/ so that first sound is a /y/ sound, which a consonant sound, so we say ‘a university.’ Number eight is similar. The word ‘European’ starts with a /y/ sound, so ‘a European tour.’ In number nine, the spelling has an ‘h’ at the start but that ‘h’ is silent. We don’t say /hau-ər/, we say /au-ər/. The first sound is an /au/ sound which is a vowel sound, so this is ‘an hour’. In the same way, in number ten, we say MA. ‘M’ starts with an /e/ sound which is again a vowel sound, so ‘an MA in English’. OK let’s move on to rule number two: Use ‘a’ and ‘an’ ONLY with singular, countable nouns. We say that a noun is countable if we can count it – one, two, three, four etc. All of these words on the screen are countable. We can say one elephant, three cars, ten teachers, five hundred onions and so on. Now if you talk about one person or thing, like one elephant or one car, then that’s called a singular noun and if you say ten teachers or five hundred onions, those are called plural nouns. Uncountable nouns cannot be counted in this way. Nouns like water, sugar, milk, love, anger, knowledge are some examples. If you think about it, you cannot say “I drank four waters” or “I want eight milks”. To a person, you can say “I love you” but you can’t say “I have five loves for you” – that doesn’t make any sense. So these are all uncountable. Alright, so the rule is - you can only use ‘a’ and ‘an’ if you’re talking about one person or one thing. Let’s do another quick exercise. Here are ten items again. This time, you see ‘a’ or ‘an’ before the nouns, but some of these are wrong. They should NOT have ‘a’ or ‘an’ before them. Stop the video, identify the mistakes, then play the video again and check. OK, here are the answers. Number three is wrong because ‘shirts’ is a plural and you cannot use ‘a’ or ‘an’ before a plural noun. Number five is wrong because ‘happiness’ is uncountable, so again, ‘a’ or ‘an’ cannot be used there. The same goes for number six – water is uncountable. Number nine is wrong because ‘doctors’ is a plural – you can say ‘a doctor’ but not ‘a doctors’. And finally, in number ten, advice is an uncountable noun – so you cannot ask for ‘an advice’. Now a quick note here: the article ‘the’ can be used with all kinds of nouns – singular or plural countable nouns, and uncountable nouns. OK, so let’s now talk about how to choose between ‘a’ or ‘an’ and ‘the’. Here’s rule number three: Use ‘a’ or ‘an’ to talk about a person or thing unknown to your listener. And use ‘the’ to talk about a person or thing known to your listener. For example, “My sister has two computers: a PC and a laptop. The PC is quite old but the laptop is brand new.” I say ‘a PC’ and ‘a laptop’ because that’s the first time I’m mentioning the two computers. That is, until this point, they are unknown to you, the listener.

In this English lesson, you will learn how to use the indefinite article (a, an) Dans ce cours, vous allez apprendre l'article indéfini en anglais. “a”, “an” and “the” are articles. They are types of determiners and they modify nouns. “a” and “an” are indefinite articles. This means "not specific" so they refer to non-specific instances of a noun. The most common use is when it is the first time we refer to an instance of a noun. In this video lesson, I explain the grammar rules and all of the other situations of when to use indefinite articles. There are some grammar exercises at the end of the lesson.

Subscribe to our channel: https://www.youtube.com/Losangelesenglishschool ________________________________________ The indefinite articles "a" and "an" are used with singular countable nouns when we mention something or someone for the first time. "A" is used before consonants and "an" - before vowels. We use "the" if it's clear for a listener what thing or person we talk about. We don't use an article with the names of cities or countries. But we say the USA. (We use "the" with the names of countries which have the words like states, republic, kingdom, or union) New York is a city. (a + noun) New York is big.(adjective) New York is a big city. (a + adjective + noun) He has an umbrella. (an + noun which starts with the vowel "u") The umbrella is blue. (the + noun cause we know what umbrella we mean) He has a blue umbrella.

Find the Lingoda website here: ► http://bit.ly/2eNytAG Test your knowledge in the three standard German articles 'der', 'die' and 'das' and when to use which one! There are some specific rules as to when either article is appropriate and in which case a German nouns has a certain grammatical gender. Here are the correct answers: 1) die Erklärung (feminine noun, singular | German nouns in singular that end in the suffix '-ung' are feminine) 2) der Junge (masculine noun, singular | masculine nouns for male people. Be careful: many other German nouns ending in '-e' are feminine!) 3) das OR die Mädchen ('das Mädchen' is neuter noun in singular / die Mädchen ('die' is the plural article in German. Why is it neuter when it's refering to a girl (a female person)? That's because it ends in the suffix '-chen' and it's actually a minimized form of 'die Magd' (which is not the standard German word for a girl nowadays)). All minimized German nouns in singular are neuter nouns!) 4) der Süden (masculine noun, no plural | all cardinal points are masculine nouns) 5) der Mississippi (masculine noun, no plural | rivers originating outside of Germany are usually masculine nouns) 6) die Hunde (masculine noun in plural | All plural nouns feature the plural article 'die', no matter which grammatical gender(s) the singular form has) 7) die Donau (feminine noun, no plural | Rivers originating in German are usually feminine nouns) 8) der OR die Dezember (masculine noun, singular OR plural noun | All months & days are masculine in singular) 9) die Freundschaft (feminine noun, singular | German nouns ending in the suffix '-schaft' are feminine) 10) die Dummheit (feminine noun, singular | German nouns ending in the suffixes '-heit & -keit' are feminine) 11) die Datei (feminine noun, singular | German nouns ending in the suffix '-ei' are feminine) 12) der Garten (masculine noun, singular | Most nouns ending in the suffix '-er' are masculine) 13) das Gold (neuter noun, no plural | Most metals are neuter nouns in German) 14) das Lamm (neuter noun, singular | Animal babies and human babies are neuter nouns in German) 15) die Einsamkeit (feminine noun, singular | German nouns in singular that end in the suffixes '-heit & -keit' are feminine) 16) die Lehrerin (feminine noun, singular | German noun that's exclusively used for a female / woman teacher; the gender suffix '-in' shows it's refering to a female person) 17) das Geheimnis (neuter noun, singular | Collectives in singular starting in the prefix 'Ge-' are neuter nouns) 18) die Magie (feminine noun, no plural | German singular nouns ending in the suffix '-ie' are feminine) 19) der König (masculine noun, singular | German singular nouns ending in the suffix '-ig' are masculine) 20) der Volkswagen (masculine noun, singular | Be careful: It's 'das Auto' (the car), but 'der Volkswagen / BMW / Porsche / Audi etc.); very often you are refering to a single car by using it's name (the brand) as a singular, masculine noun) --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Help me and support this channel: ► LIKE my videos if you enjoyed them! ► SHARE my videos and spread the word! ► SUBSCRIBE to this channel! ❖ http://bit.ly/VlogDave ► LEAVE A TIP via PayPal! ❖ http://bit.ly/vlogdavedonations ► SUPPORT ME on Patreon! ❖ http://patreon.com/VlogDave (C) VlogDave

An abstract noun is a word that means a general concept or idea, like "life" or "friendship". We can use "the" with common nouns, as in "the sky is blue". But can we use "the" with abstract nouns? For example, would you say "happiness is important" or "the happiness is important"? If you are not sure, watch this lesson to learn when to use "the" with general and abstract nouns. Don't forget to take the quiz afterwards to test your understanding! http://www.engvid.com/grammar-the-common-abstract-nouns/ TRANSCRIPT Hi. I'm Rebecca from engVid. Many English learners have trouble deciding when to use "the" or no "the", so I understand that problem, I know it can be a little bit confusing, but I believe that by the end of this lesson, you're going to find it much easier. Okay? So let's start with a little quiz first to see where you stand regarding that word "the". So, let's look at this first example. Should you say: "Life is beautiful." or "The life is beautiful."? Okay. Think about it. Decide. Another one: "Friendship is precious." or "The friendship is precious."? Which one is right? Think for yourself. We'll do one more, and then I'll give you the answers. "Happiness is important." or "The happiness is important."? Which one is correct? Do you know? How do you know? How do you decide which one is right? I'll tell you. When we're talking about something which is a general concept or idea, then we do not use "the". Okay? For example, let's take the first one. "Life is beautiful." Now, life is a general concept, so we do not need "the". So, this is the correct answer. All right? Not this. "Life is beautiful." Because life is a general idea, a general concept. Okay? We're not talking about anything specific. If we say: "The life of wise people is beautiful." that is something specific, and then we would be correct to say: "The life". Okay? But if we're just talking in general, then no "the". Let's look at the next example. "Friendship is precious." Again, friendship is a general idea or a general concept, so this is correct. Okay? In this example, this one was wrong. But if I said, for example: "The friendship between those two children is precious." then that would be fine, because now I'm specifying which friendship. Right? The friendship between those two children, so then it becomes specific, and then we would use "the". But in this example, this is correct. Okay? Just like this was, and this is wrong, because this is a general idea. Okay? Next one: "Happiness is important." By now you know, again, happiness is a general idea, a general concept, so this is correct. In this example, it would be wrong to say: "The happiness", because: The happiness of what? So, if we say: "The happiness of my family is important." that's fine. That's very good. That would be a perfect sentence. But in this case, we cannot say: "The happiness is important." because we didn't specify which happiness. Okay? So, in this case, that's wrong, and this is correct. Okay? Now, the same principle applies to these. See if you can figure it out. Okay? "I want to make money." or "I want to make the money."? Which one do you think is right? Are we speaking in general, or are we speaking specifically? Well, we are speaking in general right now, so this is correct, because we're just talking about money; we didn't say which money. I want to make money. Right? General idea. If I said, for example: "I want to make the money I need to pay my rent." that's specific, so then I could say: "the money", because I'm explaining after that which money. Okay? But in this example, no. Next one: "She wants to lose weight." or "She wants to lose the weight."? Is it general or is it specific? What do you think? It's still general. Good. By now you're getting really smart. "She wants to lose weight." is a general term. Right? We're just talking about weight in general; not any specific weight. But if I say: "She wants to lose the weight she put on during the holidays." that's specific, and then I need "the". Okay? But not in this example. So, last one here: "He needs to earn respect." or do we say: "He needs to earn the respect."? Is it general or is it specific? By now you know, you'll really know. It's general. Very good. Okay? Because we didn't talk about any specific respect; we're talking about respect in general. So: "He needs to earn respect." But if this was being used, it would be something like: "He needs to earn the respect of his peers." Peers are people your age. Okay? Or: "He needs to earn the respect of his employees." for example, or "of his parents". Then it becomes specific. Which respect? The respect of his parents, the respect of his employees. All right? So, if it was specific, then we could say "the", but when we're just talking in general, we don't need "the". "Life is beautiful.", "Friendship is precious.", "Happiness is important.", "I want to make money.", "She wants to lose weight.", "He needs to earn respect."

Articles - a, an & the - English Grammar lesson Take the quiz - http://www.learnex.in/articles-a-an-the/ The 3 articles in English are a, an and the. The learner has to decide noun-by-noun which one of the articles to use. In fact, there are 4 choices to make, because sometimes no article is necessary. Native-speakers, of course, use the articles correctly without thinking. English learners, on the other hand, need to have some guidelines for making the right choice - particularly those learners whose own language does not have articles. The guidelines that follow in this lesson should help ESL students to a basic understanding of English article use. The words a, an and the are known as articles. • We use an before words that begin with vowels (a,e,i,o,u). E.g. I found an orange boat. However there are few exceptions like the words honest and hour. In the words honest and hour the alphabet h is silent and therefore the letter o becomes the first alphabet of the word and hence we use the article an. E.g. Mr. Smith is an honest man. I will be with you in an hour. We use a before words that begin with consonants (all the letters of the alphabet except the vowels). E.g. Bumble is a baby elephant. • We use the before words that we have already spoken about. E.g. I bought an apple. The apple is very sweet.

We will first talk about concrete and abstract nouns, then we'll look at common and proper nouns which are a very important area. Then we'll discuss the very interesting collective nouns and finally we'll turn to the most important topic relating to nouns, and that is countable and uncountable nouns. Before we start just remember - for any questions let me know in the comments section below and I'll talk to you there. OK so first of all what is a noun? I'm sure you know the answer to this - A noun is just the name of a person, place, animal, thing, feeling or idea. For example in this sentence "Graham likes to go to the zoo and see the animals." Here there are three nouns - can you identify all of them? The nouns are Graham - a person, zoo - a place and animals. Nouns can also be things like watch, T-shirt etc. And all of these - people, places, animals and things are physical - that means we can see them and we can touch them. So they are called concrete nouns - that means they have a real physical existence. So what are abstract nouns? Abstract nouns are nouns that don't have physical existence. That means we cannot touch them or see them, and these are ideas and feelings. Now in this sentence Honesty is the best policy. It's a very popular proverb in English Have you heard of that? In that sentence honesty and policy are both nouns but they are abstract nouns. And this next example Love is a powerful emotion. Love is the name of a feeling like anger, happiness or sorrow. And love is a noun. Emotion is also a noun. OK let's now talk about common and proper nouns. Do you know what common and proper nouns are? A common noun is a general noun and a proper noun is the name given to a specific individual. For example in this chart all the nouns on the left are common nouns and all the nouns on the right are proper nouns. For example man is a common noun because it can mean any man but Ganesh is the name of one man - one individual, which in this case is me of course. So Ganesh is a proper noun. Woman, in the same way, is a common noun - it could be any woman but Allison is the name of an individual, so a proper noun. In the next two, city and country are common nouns but Hamburg and China are the names of one city and one country, so proper nouns. OK now let me ask you a question at this point - do you notice something about the proper nouns? You should be noticing that they're all written with a capital first letter. And that is actually a rule in English - proper nouns are always written with a capital first letter. With university, for example, when we talk about universities in general we use it as a common noun so the whole word is written in lower case - that means in small letters. But when we're talking about a specific university like the University of Chicago, notice that both the 'U' in University and the 'C' in Chicago are capitals. That's because it's a proper noun that refers to one specific university. OK there are more examples on the screen but I want you to focus on the last two - day and month. With the days of the week - Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, we always write them with the first letter capitalized because they are proper nouns.

Basic English Grammar -- Chapter 02 -- Singular and Plural nouns Singular Noun Definition: When a noun means one only, it is said to be singular. Examples: boy, girl, book, church, box Plural Noun Definition: When a noun means more than one, it is said to be plural. Examples: boys, girls, books, churches Rule #1 The plural of nouns is usually formed by adding s to a singular noun. Example: lamp, lamps; cat, cats; fork, forks; flower, flowers; pen, pens Rule #2 Nouns ending in s, z, x, sh, and ch form the plural by adding es. Example: moss, mosses buzz, buzzes box, boxes dish, dishes church, churches Special Note: If you add s to such nouns as fox, bush, and bench, you will find that you cannot pronounce them without making an additional syllable. This is why such nouns form the plural by adding es. Rule #3 Nouns ending in y preceded by a consonant is formed into a plural by changing y to ies. Examples: lady, ladies; city, cities; army, armies Rule #4 Nouns ending in y preceded by a vowel form their plurals by adding s. Example: boy, boys; day, days Rule #5 Most nouns ending in o preceded by a consonant is formed into a plural by adding es. Example: hero; heroes; grotto, grottoes Rule #6 Some nouns ending in f or fe are made plural by changing f or fe to ves. Example: beef, beeves; wife, wives

Do you think English grammar is confusing? Ever wonder why can we say "a dollar" but we can't say "a money"? Why can we say "houses", but not "furnitures"? In this class, you will learn the grammar rules about countable and uncountable nouns in English, including when to use "a" or "an", when to add an "s" at the end of a noun to make it plural, and when you should NOT add an "s". You will also learn about the difference between "much" and "many". Test yourself with the quiz at https://www.engvid.com/countable-uncountable-nouns-english-grammar/ Watch next: FIX YOUR GRAMMAR MISTAKES! -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XnrAM9QZ90U&list=PLaNNx1k0ao1u-x_nKdKNh7cKALzelzXjY&index=40 #engvid #LearnEnglish #EnglishGrammar TRANSCRIPT Hello. My name is Emma, and in today's video I'm going to teach you about countable and uncountable nouns. We can also call these "count nouns" and "non-count nouns". So, let's begin by first talking about: What is a noun? So, a noun is a word that is a person... It can be a person, so: "Emma", that's a noun; "teacher", that's a noun. It can be a place. "Russia" is a noun. "School" is a noun. It can be an animal; a dog. "Dog" is a noun. The word "cat" is a noun. It can also be a thing. This marker... The word "marker" is a noun. Okay? And it can also be a feeling. "Happiness" is a noun. So, a noun is a person, a place, a thing, an object, an animal. There are many things that are nouns. What a noun is not is it's not an action, like a verb; it's not a description, like an adjective; and it's not a preposition, like the word "on" or "off". Okay? A noun is, like I've said before, one of these things. So, in English... Well, actually, first let's do something. Let's underline the nouns just to make sure we have this concept. So, my first sentence is: "Canada is a large country." So let's underline the nouns, here. Well, "Canada" is a place, so we know "Canada" is a noun; "is" is a verb; "large" - this is a description; "country". "Country" is a place; this is also a noun. "My teacher is funny". "Teacher" is a person, so this is a noun; "funny" is a description, it's an adjective, it's not a noun. "The dog", so we have "dog" is an animal; "cats", "cats" are nouns; and we have the word, here, "friends". The word "friend" is also a noun. Okay? So, these are all nouns. So, in English, we have two types of nouns; we have countable nouns and we have uncountable nouns. It's important to know if a noun is countable or uncountable, because this is going to tell us if we use words, like: "a" in front of the word, and it will also tell us which words we cannot use with these words. So... And whether or not we need to add an "s" to the end of the noun if there's more than one. So, in this video, we are going to talk about countable nouns with many examples and uncountable nouns. So, let's look at countable nouns first. Okay, so we're going to start with countable nouns first. So, the first thing you need to know with a countable noun is when we have a countable noun, we need to put an "a" or an "an" in front of it. So, for example: "I have a dog. I have a computer. I have a lamp. I have a chair." So, notice I'm putting "a" in front of all of these. If the noun starts with a vowel sound, so for example: "a" is a vowel, "e", "i", "o", "u" - these are all vowels. And if it starts with a vowel sound, then we use "an". "I have an apple. I have an egg. I have an ant." Okay? So, we use this if the first... The first sound of the word is a vowel. So, the second thing you need to know is that with countable nouns a lot of the time we can count them. Okay? So we can often... A countable noun is something you can count, or... Usually it's something, or an animal, or, you know, a place - it's something you can count. So, for example: "I have a book." This is one book. "I have two books.", "I have three books." So, this... You can count books and it's a countable noun. "I have two chairs. I have five dresses." These are all countable nouns. When we have more than one countable noun, so for example, here we have one, here we have two. If we have more than one-so two, three, four, five, six-we need to add an "s". This shows us that there is more than one. And also notice that we don't need this in front of the noun anymore. So, we cannot say: "a books", because the "s" means there's more than one, so this would not match. Okay. What else do we need? So, we need an "s" or an "es" if we have more than one of this type of object or noun. Here's another example: "I have one sister.", "I have three sisters." So, notice here, you can count the number of sisters I have, and so I've added an "s". Now, we have some exceptions. For example, the word "moose". You can count the number of moose, but we never add an "s". It's... It's a strange exception. In English, you'll notice we have a lot of exceptions. We break rules a lot of times in English and that's okay. It's the same with "fish".

Sometimes using terms when you're learning a language can hurt more than it helps. This is possibly one of those times. But we need to refer to stuff somehow, right? In today's lesson, I go over Definite & Indefinite Articles in Spanish. If you don't know what those are, join the club. Even when I learned Spanish, since I learned on my own, I never knew what those were. Bottom line, it doesn't really matter, as long as you know how to use them. A definite article is simple "the". When you say "the cookie", everybody knows exactly which cookie is being talked about. Which cookie you want is definite. The opposite of that, an indefinite article is when you say "a cookie". Now, you are just saying give me "a" cookie among the many cookies. Which cookie you want is NOT definite. In the plural form, the indefinite article is basically "some" or "a few". I explain it all in the video and of course, give you the lowdown on the Spanish equivalents. So watch the video, do the Articles Worksheet available @ https://spanishdude.com/quickies/articles/ and leave me a comment or message me if you have any questions at all or need some clearing up.

Learn how to use the words this, that, these and those with this English grammar lesson. These words are used as demonstrative adjectives and sometimes simply as demonstrative pronouns. We use "this" to refer to nouns (objects or people) in the singular which are close to the speaker and "these" for the plural. For nouns far from the speaker, "that" is used for the singular and those in the plural. For actions in the present or the near future, we use "this", for example, "This meal is nice" (during the meal). But for actions which have finished and in the past, we use "that". Example talking about a football match: "That match was great yesterday." We always use "this is" when introducing ourselves and other people. At the end of the English grammar lesson about the demonstratives, I give you an exercise to test your understanding.

There are some nouns in English that are simply ALWAYS plural. These are nouns like "glasses," "scissors," "pants," "jeans," "clothes," and several others, all of which are covered in this practical English grammar lesson. Do count and non-count nouns confuse you? This lesson that will make the topic easier for you. So what are you waiting for? If you want to erase some of your doubts and use grammar and vocabulary more accurately, this video will do the trick. Thanks for clicking, and don't forget to check out the quiz after the video to test your understanding of the material: https://www.engvid.com/english-grammar-vocabulary-permanent-plurals/ TRANSCRIPT [Exhales] So hot today. You know what? I don't need pants for this video. Whew. Hey, everyone. I'm Alex. Thanks for clicking, and welcome to this lesson on "Nouns That Are Always Plural". So, if you know anything about count and noncount nouns, you know that count nouns can be singular or plural. "Cup", "cups"; "table", "tables"; "school", "schools". But there are some nouns... The list is not very long, but there are some nouns that always stay plural, that only have a plural form, and today I'm going to talk about them. Now, I know some of you might have some issues, you know, trying to memorize some of these things, but after today's lesson, I promise you: You're going to feel a lot better, a lot more confident, and you will be able to use these nouns correctly and confidently, which is really important, obviously, when you're learning and speaking a language. So... Whew. That's better. I feel the air now. I feel the air. So: "clothes", the word "clothes" itself is permanently plural. Right? So you can say: "I have too many clothes." Not: "too much clothes", because even though it only has one form, some people say: "Do I have too much clothes or too many clothes?" No, it's a plural, permanently plural, so you use "many" with the noun "clothes". Okay? So: "I have too many clothes." You can't say... Do not say: "I have two clothes", or: "to clothes-es-es", don't do it. Okay? So, just: "I have a lot of clothes. I need new clothes. I need some new clothes." That's okay. If you want to count clothes, there is a way, but you don't use the word "clothes", you use the word "clothing" and you use the quantifier expression of "articles of clothing". Okay? So: "There are 3 new articles of clothing in my closet." Otherwise: "clothes". "I have a lot of clothes, too many clothes." Okay? "I need new clothes." Continuing on, I've separated the second part of this video into three sections. One: leg stuff; two: other stuff; three: other other stuff. By the way, "leg stuff" is not a technical term at all, but stick with me. So, basically anything that you can, like, pull up on your legs, like the pants that I had and I no longer have, you can use in a permanent plural. Okay? So, what are some examples of leg stuff, things you can put on your legs? One, very general: "pants". Okay? You can say: "I need new pants." If you want to count pants or any of the other things I'm going to talk about related to clothes, you can also say: "I need a new pair". So, "a pair" means two. Now, again, legs have... Leg stuff, pants, jeans, etc., you have two legs and you put one and then the other, so this is a pair. So you can say: "I need a new pair of pants", or "a new pair of jeans", or "a new pair of shorts", for example. And you can also just say: "I need new pants", "new shorts", "new jeans", "new overalls". If you don't know what "overalls" are, I've drawn you a little picture. If you know Super Mario Brothers, Super Mario and Luigi wear overalls. A lot of, you know, people who work in factories have to wear clothes that cover their whole bodies from the legs all the way up, these are overalls. "Leggings", so leggings and "tights", these are very similar. When you think of leggings, think of tights. You might think of a Shakespearean theatre, a Shakespearean play where the actors wear really tight, tight, tight, thin layers of pants to cover their legs, and usually they cover your feet as well. Right? So, yeah, leggings, tights. And "shorts". Now, you might be thinking: "Well, Alex, what about that other thing that you put underneath your clothes that you're wearing?" that I'm wearing now, which is underwear. Okay? Underwear is an exception to this rule. We don't say, you know: "underwears" all the time, it's just "underwear" without a plural. Okay? But you still say: "two pairs of underwear", "three pairs of underwear", but just there's no "s" on the end of it. Okay? So, just for pronunciation, just repeat after me with these words, guys: "pants", "jeans", "overalls", "shorts", "tights", "leggings". All right, continuing on with this, you can also say with other stuff that: "You need new", or "You need a new pair of scissors." You use scissors to cut-right?-in school, or at home. Or: "a new pair of glasses". So, I have a pair of glasses here. […]

Transcript: Hi and welcome to this series of lessons on the parts of speech My name is Ganesh and in this first lesson I'm going to give you a quick Introduction to the eight parts of speech. In the following lessons we'll learn more in detail about each part of speech. Before we start just remember if you have any questions at all you just have to let me know in the comments section below and I will talk to you there. OK so first of all what is a part of speech? Well a part of speech is just the name given to a word based on the job that it does in a sentence. Think of parts of speech as being kind of like job titles Just like a person can be a teacher or a doctor or a lawyer - a word can be a verb, an adjective, a noun etc depending on the job that it does in a sentence And these can be really useful to learn because when you're studying grammar you will come across terms like these, you will come across terms like nouns, verbs and adjectives, and if you know what they mean it can help you to speed up your study of grammar. Alright so how many parts of speech are there? There are eight parts of speech and we start by talking about the verb. We start with the verb because verbs are probably the most important words in the English language, and that is for two reasons: first every sentence in English must have a verb You cannot have sentences without verbs in English, and the second reason is that only verbs have tenses. I'm sure you know about past tense, present tense and future tense That's how we talk about different times and to do that we change the forms of verbs. So verbs are really important. So what does a verb do? Well a verb is a word that shows an action or a state - state means a situation. For example in the sentence Dylan plays tennis three times a week. In the sentence the verb is play because that's the action, and we're saying plays because for he,she and it we say plays - we add the 's' to the verb in the present tense, so "Dylan plays." In this next sentence "I am a teacher" - can you tell me which is the verb? The verb is 'am; - that's basically just the verb to be - but we say I am, you are, he is etc. so "I am a teacher" Now I want you to notice a very important difference between these two sentences. Notice that in the first sentence we are talking about a physical action because playing is something that we do physically. But in the second sentence we are not talking about any physical action - we're just saying "I am a teacher." We call that a state, that means a situation. So verbs can show actions or they can show states or situations. Those are the two types of verbs OK the next part of speech is the noun. A noun is the name given to a person, place, animal, thing, feeling or idea. For example here's a sentence with a lot of nouns - "Rosie went to Malta on vacation with her family last year." Can you identify all the nouns in the sentence? Well the first noun is Rosie - it's the name of a person. The second noun is Malta Malta is the name of a place. It's actually a beautiful small little island country in Europe. Malta is a place. The next noun is vacation. Vacation is the name given to a type of trip the people take, and the noun after that is family What's a family? A family is a group of people who are related - mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, brothers, sisters etc. and the last noun in the sentence is year - a year is just 365 days or the time that it takes the earth to go around the Sun. Now of course nouns can also be animals like dogs or cats or a noun could be a thing like watch, pen, t-shirt etc. Or it could be a feeling such as love or anger Those are all nouns. What's a pronoun then? A pronoun is a word that replaces a noun - replaces means it takes the place of a noun. But you might ask - why should a pronoun do that? Well take a look at this sentence -
