So much to review!

This lesson is all about memorization. I feel like I've been bombarded with so much vocabulary that relates to inflection and classification of individual parts of a sentence.

The first part of the video lecture defines the term "inflection" as a change in the form of a word and reviews how it changes the relation and meaning in a sentence.

The second part of the video lesson reviews how to classify parts of a sentence. In terms of classification, Marie lists the different types of nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, and conjunctions. There are 6 ways to classify nouns: concrete, abstract, common, proper, collective, and compound. There are 6 ways to classify pronouns: personal, compound personal, demonstrative, interrogative, indefinite, and conjunctive. In terms of verbs, there are 8 types: transitive, intransitive, copula, action, possession, existence, principal, and auxiliary. There are 5 ways to classify adjectives: qualitative, quantitative, demonstrative, interrogative, and conjunctive. Adverbs can be broken down into 7 categories: time, place, manner, degree, cause, interrogative, and conjunctive. And finally, Conjunctions come in 4 different types: coordinate, subordinate, correlative, and phrasal.
