Identifying Parts Of Speech

Dictionary Skills #8

Worksheet Description

This worksheet is designed to enhance students’ dictionary skills by focusing on identifying parts of speech for a given list of words. The exercise encourages learners to consult a dictionary to determine whether words such as “relate,” “pauper,” and “augment” function as nouns, verbs, adjectives, or other parts of speech, and acknowledges that some words may serve multiple grammatical roles.

This activity not only aids in vocabulary building but also helps students understand the context-dependent nature of English words. By completing this task, students will improve their ability to use dictionaries effectively, which is a fundamental research skill. Such proficiency is essential for writing, reading comprehension, and language studies. The worksheet is suitable for classroom instruction or home practice, allowing students to independently sharpen their language skills and gain confidence in their ability to navigate the English language.
