Bigger Parts of Speech

posted: 1.26.07 by Barclay Barrios

Have students review the section of the handbook on parts of speech. Then, in groups, ask them to create new parts of speech from common combinations of the usual parts of speech. For example, using an article and a noun together might form a “nonticle”; using an adverb and an adjective together might be a “jerbad.” Each group should create rules for using this bigger part of speech, based on the rules for the parts’ smaller components.
