Parts of Speech[edit]

interjection preposition conjunction
pronoun noun verb
determiner adjective adverb

Articles and numerals as subsumed under determiner. (For dictionary purposes these two should be considered separate, though.) Participles as straddling verb, noun, adjectives, and adverbs, or subsumed under verb. (See singing. When a participle acts as noun or adjective and therethrough acquires special meaning then those special meanings are spun off into separate Noun and Adjective sections, whereas participle proper is listed under Verb; a fraction of a verb, as it were.)
