Words with More than One Job


Many words in English can have more than one job, or be more than one part of speech. For example, "work" can be a verb and a noun; "but" can be a conjunction and a preposition; "well" can be an adjective, an adverb and an interjection. In addition, many nouns can act as adjectives.

To analyze the part of speech, ask yourself: "What job is this word doing in this sentence?"

In the table below you can see a few examples. Of course, there are more, even for some of the words in the table. In fact, if you look in a good dictionary you will see that the word but has six jobs to do:

verb, noun, adverb, pronoun, preposition and conjuction!
word part of speech example

work noun: My work is easy.
verb: I work in London

but conjunction: John came but Mary didn't come

preposition: Everyone came but Mary

well adjective: Are you well?

adverb: She speaks well.

interjection Well! That's expensive!

afternoon noun: We ate in the afternoon.

noun acting as adjective: We had afternoon tea

Part of speech is very important in learning English and it's seems to be difficult for many learners and students , but it is actually easy once you understand it well...
