    Every name is called a NOUN,
    As field and fountain, street and town;
    In place of noun the PRONOUN stands
    As he and she can clap their hands;
    The ADJECTIVE describes a thing,
    As magic wand and bridal ring;
    The VERB means action, something done -
    To read, to write, to jump, to run;
    How things are done, the ADVERBS tell,
    As quickly, slowly, badly, well;
    The PREPOSITION shows relation,
    As in the street, or at the station;
    CONJUNCTIONS join, in many ways,
    Sentences, words, or phrase and phrase;
    The INTERJECTION cries out, ‘Hark!
    I need an exclamation mark!’
    Through poetry, we learn how each
    of these make up THE PARTS OF SPEECH.

    Webster was an orderly-minded man who disapproved of a lot of the spelling that Johnson had recorded (indeed, he disapproved of a lot about Johnson, saying that he was ‘naturally indolent and seldom wrote until he was urged by want. Hence… he was compelled to prepare his manuscripts in haste.’).

    Webster’s dislike of words that weren’t pronounced the way they looked led him to decree that words such as centre and theatre should be spelled center and theater; he also dropped the silent u from words such as colour, favour and honour. In fact, Webster was single-handedly responsible for most of the differences between British and American spelling that survive to this day.

    To abuse something means to treat it so badly that you damage it.

    To misuse something means to use it wrongly.
