Introduction to Elements of Speech

The elements which constitute the structure of a language have their own nature and a function to play so that the structure can be formed and function adequately.

If we want to analyse language communication and speech, we soon come across speech elements such as; Nouns, verbs, pronouns, determiners, qualifying adjectives, adverbs, prepositions and conjunctions.

These are the 'bare bones' of the language and put together they become segments, known as phrases which, when put together, create sentences.

All these elements have different functions that will be seen in more detail in the Speech in Grammatical Action Section, but first of all let’s look at the nature of these elements in detail.
