Word classes

Words that can only belong to one class

  •  In English, many words belong to just one class.
  • One way to identify the class of some words is to look at the way they end: 

 -th, -ence, -ity or -ness are usually noun endings 

-ly is usually an adverb ending

-able is usually an adjective ending

-ate is usually a verb ending
