‘Preposition’ at the start, then ending with a noun. Along the flowing torrents, all custardly and brown. Up above, the gathered clouds hooked upon the ridge. Below, the swelling waters behind the crumbling bridge, and then the deepest thrumming sound before a purple light inside an orange chocolate-bar. This chapter covers the structure-class words: pronouns, determiners including articles, conjunctions, and prepositions. It also covers a fifth part of speech, the interjection, doesn’t have a grammatical or structuring function. The only structure-class words that change their form are pronouns. There are many types of pronouns in English: personal including intensive and reflexive, demonstrative, interrogative, relative, indefinite, distributive, reciprocal, and expletive. Determiners are structure-class words that express grammatical-structural relationships. They precede and specify nouns and noun phrases. They indicate which particular example of the noun or noun phrase is being referred to by providing information about possession, definiteness, specificity, or quantity.
