The girl quickly makes a delicious cake in the Kitchen.

The = definate article

Girl= noun (subject)

Quickly= adverb

Makes= verb

A = indefinate article

Delicious =adjective

Cake = noun (direct object)

In = preposition

-The definate article is the grammatical name given to the word 'the'.

The indefinate article is the name given to the word 'a' or 'an.'

A noun is a person, place, thing or animal (eg. Tom, London, chair, cat.)

A verb is a word that describes an action (eg. Eats.)

An adjective is a word that describes a noun (eg. Pretty).

An adverb is a word that describes the verb. It tells you how an action is done (eg. Quickly). Many adverbs in English end in '-ly'.

A preposition is a word placed before a noun or a pronoun to indicate time, place or condition (eg.

On the table.)

A conjunction is a word that links two parts of a sentence (eg. He was eating and drinking.) The most common conjunctions in English are 'and' and 'but'.

A pronoun is a word that stands in place of a noun. In the sentence above, we could replace the noun 'the girl' by the pronoun 'she'. Similarly, 'a cake' could be replaced by 'it'.

A relative pronoun is a word that links one part of a sentence to another. In English the relative pronouns are 'who', 'whom', 'which', 'where' and 'that'. (eg. I gave him all the money that I earned.) The two parts of the sentence - (I gave him all the money, and that I earned) - are linked together by the relative pronoun 'that'.

A Negative is a word like 'not or 'never' that indicates an action is not being done.
