Great quiz! I have one minor issue - on every other quiz on this site, "England" was never a permitted answer... I get is, since Scotland fields a team, but I kept typing in "United Kingdom" and "Great Britain" until time ran out! Still 82/88 ain't bad.

Here we go again. UK and Britain are just plain wrong! The team that won the World Cup in 1966 was England - Scotland didn't win it, Wales didn't win it, Northern Ireland didn't win it, UK didn't win it, Britain didn't win it, Great Britain didn't win it - England won it.

Apr 9, 2019
Football (Soccer) is a terrible game made worse by the vast number of terrible sportspeople who play it professionally - supposedly very fit athletes who fall over and pretend to cry because they've grazed their knee so that they can gain an unfair advantage.

American Football is a great game - the combination of the physical skills and the strategy & tactics involved make it very exciting and interesting. And I never understood the complaint from Soccer fans that there are frequent stops in the game - in Soccer there is nothing interesting happening 90% of the time but in American Football there's some action about every 30 seconds
+1
level 69
Apr 18, 2019
No goal scored =/= nothing happening. The beauty of football (soccer) lies in passing, dribbling, and constantly changing positions, which makes the game fluid and unpredictable. There's more foreplay and fewer orgasms, so to say. However, I agree that it is ruined by unsportsmanlike behavior. And that, at the end of the day, those sports are just blokes tossing around balls. Entertaining if you like it, but hardly insightful or relevant - in other words: not worth to freak out about.

pronouns are NOT a type of noun. This book. "this" is not a noun. It's a definite pronoun. Some people. "some" is an indefinite pronoun.

Jul 31, 2014
Yeah, there's some disagreement on the number of parts of speech, with determiners (including articles) often being broken out of adjectives, and other nitpicky issues that only grammarians really get (my wife is one of them). This group of 8 is the most commonly used grouping, though.

Schoolhouse rock did not have a segment on articles, so therefore they are not a part of speech.

Articles are adjectives. At least that is what I learned in grammar school. Also as pointed out, no schoolhouse rock cartoon so not a part of speech.

You can omit an adjective from a sentence and it will remain grammatical; the same is not true of articles. They aren't the same thing, and old grammar textbooks are just wrong.

An article is a type of adjective.

Mar 5, 2017
From a syntax perspective, verbs, nouns, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions, tense, determiners, degree words, conjunctions, pronouns (behaves as a noun but is somewhat distinct) and complementizers (whether, if, that) should be the parts of speech.

This is similar to confusing Koalas with bears. Drop Bears are actually marsupials closely related to koalas, however where koalas have lost their predatory nature Drop Bears have gone the other way entirely.

Wasted half my time on Parts of Speech. My strategy was to think of a couple of sentences and see what sorts of words were in them. Unfortunately, this didn't produce "Interjection". Also, the words "an" and "the" were in my sentences and didn't seem covered by any of the seven Parts of Speech I'd gotten. (They're definitely not adjectives. You can't say "I saw red car yesterday" nor "I saw seven the cars yesterday", but "I saw a car yesterday" and "I saw seven red cars yesterday" are fine.) So, there I was: "'Article'! Uh, I mean, 'Determiner'. No? Hmm ... golly, I thought for sure they were called Determiners ... um, 'Number'? 'Numerator'? This isn't working. Hmm ... 'Particle'? No? Coulda sworn there was a part of speech called a Particle.... Bah!"

It really depends on which text book you're looking at.

level 53
Feb 5, 2015
'An' and 'the' are part of a special branch of adjectives called articles. So yes, they are adjectives.
+1
level 48
Mar 5, 2017
They are most decidedly not adjectives. "An" and "the" are determiners that appear in the specifier position of noun phrase (NP). Adjectives are words that modify nouns and are placed in the specifier position of N'.
+2
level 52
Feb 15, 2018
They are adjectives. Article adjectives, to be precise. And the reason you can't say 'I saw seven red the cars yesterday' is because there is a natural order as to how adjectives go in a sentence. 'Red seven cars' also sounds wrong, but 'red' and 'seven' are both adjectives; they're just in the wrong order. 'A', 'an', and 'the' always go first among adjectives (for example, 'I saw the seven red cars yesterday').
+2
level 75
Apr 4, 2019
I spent a decade teaching English. Trust me, it really depends on which text book you're looking at. There's no agreement on how many parts of speech there are or which things count or not, or how to label those things that do count. Honestly I think this category should be taken off the quiz but if it remains then it's no better or worse than any other list you find online.
