DD1 just asked me is "yes" a verb, a noun, an adjective?


but beyond this i am clueless in the technical terms in this area - must be a crib sheet somewhere?

It's a noun smile - names the affirmative.

Do you mean you want a link or us to do a quick run down for you?

The Nine Parts of Speech

Three little words you often see,
Are articles- a, an, and the.

A noun's the name of anything
As school, garden, hoop, or swing.

An adjective tells the kind of noun-
Great, small, pretty, white, or brown.

Instead of nouns the pronouns stand-
Her head, his face, your arm, my hand.

Verbs tell of something to be done,
To read, sing, jump, or run.

How things are done the adverbs tell,
As slowly, quickly, ill, or well.

Conjunctions join words together,
As men and women, wind or weather.

The prepositions stands before
A noun, as at or through the door.

The interjection shows surprise,
As ah! How pretty- Oh! how wise.

The whole are called nine parts of speech,
Which reading, writing, speaking teach.
