Words are parts of speech or writing with definitions or distinct meanings. We put words together to create sentences. Words help us express ideas through language, both written and verbal. When we speak, we combine sounds to create a blend of sounds that mean something to form a word and convey meaning to a listener.
When we write words, we set them apart with spaces before and after them. The spaces help us distinguish each word in a sentence. Words can have different functions. Nouns are words that represent a person, place, or thing.
Look at the list of words that are nouns:
dog cat carrot word baker bread sand
basket dress shoes floor trousers teeth mother book lamp cabinet pantry blanket lotion glass
Hat sidewalk box chocolate sofa alien tree
Verbs are words that describe action. They are words that tell us what someone or something is doing.
