Word Building

Advanced Word Building. In English, words are formed with a stem which is then modified with a variety of prefixes and suffixes. These additions can dramatically change the meaning or grammatical usage of the word.

Basic sounds

It is generally agreed that there are approximately 44 sounds in English, with some variation dependent on accent and articulation. The 44 English phonemes are represented by the 26 letters of the alphabet individually and in combination.

Elementary Grammar

In English grammar, a pronoun is a word that is used instead of the noun.

A basic example is "Sarah is tall". In this sentence, Sarah is a noun. Because we know that Sarah is a girl, we can use the pronoun she and keep the same meaning - "She is tall".
