  • Colloquial Words - Colloquialism is a form of expression which we allow in familiar conversation (written or spoken), but which we disallow in formal and dignified conversation.
  • Connecting Words - A word that connects words, phrases, or clauses is called a Conjunction. If it connects words, phrases, and clauses of equal rank, it is called a Co-ordinate Conjunction

  • Foreign Words - Many foreign words, principally French and Latin, have weaseled their way into English expressions because they are necessary to make ideas clear.
  • Generic Words and Specific Words - Words are grouped according to the subjects to which they are related. Words are classified according to the character of their meaning and origin.
  • Latin Words - Words of classical—Latin and Greek—origin and composition lend dignity and elegance to the English language.

  • Name Words - A word that names a person, a place, or a thing is called a Noun. A Proper Noun names some particular person, place, or thing.
  • New Words - New Words are sometimes called Coined Words. In general, exercise caution when introducing new words into your writing.
  • Old Words and Obsolete Words - Old Words are sometimes called Obsolete or Archaic. Language grows and develops, and as such, language adopts new or revised words and discards old, useless ones.
