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!"

'An' and 'the' are part of a special branch of adjectives called articles. So yes, they are adjectives.

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'.

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').

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.

Kodiak bears are a unique subspecies of the brown or grizzly bear (Ursus arctos middendorffi). They live exclusively on the islands in the Kodiak Archipelago and have been isolated from other bears for about 12,000 years.

Canberra is the captal of the ACT, not a state or territory, and the question was asking australian states or territories. But i made the same mistake if it makes you feel better! :)

That was last week. They're back in the bear family this week. (Giant pandas, only. Not red pandas.) Some doctoral candidate will challenge the latest decision and they will be back with the raccoons at some point. But apparently at present they are bears again.

Pandas are not planets, but they are part of Asia and generally classified as vegetables, not fruit. Opinion is divided on whether or not they are autonomous countries, though.

I must say, I've lived in London for close to two years, and I've never had a full English without one or two hash browns. Genuine question: is there some sort of official council with a royal warrant, or an obscure Act of Parliament that defines the full English breakfast?
+1
Level 75

There's no definitive list of course. I think hash browns are left off only because that would make 9 and they did come from the USA originally, even though they are pretty ubiquitous in a full English these days.
