The most important thing in any language or dialect is to get the grammar right. Figure of speech, verbs, nouns, consonants are some of the topics under grammar. We master the fluency which is possible with a concentrated method of hearing correct English, speaking with the right people and comprehending the terms of grammar. English is a global language and in many countries it is adopted as a second language. Whether it is job seeking or education we need to learn the English and the grammar accurately.
Whether you enroll in a English speaking course or refer the English speaking dictionary, learning grammar involves an exercise. Mere mugging up a verb and consonant will not do as it has to be comprehended and correctly applied.
He/She/It is the gender bifurcation in English which resembles masculine/feminine and neutral gender. Neutral gender represents non living things like a table, trolley or a machine.
An interesting topic in English grammar is the Figure of speech. Simile examples are “like a rose”, ” As hard as a nail” or when we say that “Life is like an onion”. The similarity is comparison to life like an onion with an underlying meaning of teary emotions. Onomatopoeia refers to the ‘buzz’ of a bee, ‘oinking ‘of a pig and ‘creaking’ of a chair. One can exaggerate with a Hyperbole like mountains out of molehills. ‘In the arctic the polar bears wear woolens’, is a perfect exaggeration which expresses the cold unbearable temperature there.
Adjectives are descriptive. Clever, witty, cruel, dispassionate all refer to adjectives that qualify a noun. They give more meaning to the noun. ‘The teacher is strict’ means it qualifies or mentions the quality of the teacher. Nouns are classified into Proper noun, Common noun, Concrete noun, countable, uncountable nouns, abstract nouns and collective nouns. Verbs are actions like to hear, to read, to speak, to write and to understand English grammar. One needs to understand about Verb Phrase and Verb Tense too. Words that substitute a noun are ‘pronouns’.
The glossary of English grammar is exhaustive and it is an enriching experience to know and retain in our memory the little intonations, vowels, article, auxiliary, interjections, interrogation and rhetoric’s, subject-predicate and a conjunction.
