While helping my son, who happens to be in the 5th grade, with his English grammar, I have realized that I am confused. The following sentence, that I gave him as an exercise, he has identified the components i.e. verbs/verb-types, adverbs, adjectives and nouns as follows:
Sentence: "Jack is going to have a car of his own."
Identification of grammatical parts:
- Jack - Proper noun
- is - Being verb
- going to - Action verb
- have - Possession verb
- a - article (not taught yet, my identification)
- car - common noun
- of - prepositions (not taught yet, my identification)
- his - pronoun
- own - adjective
Is the above correct identification ? My main doubts are about the verbs and verb types, since I believe that contrary to how my son has been taught to identify verb types, some of the types change contextually, and some of the verbs are contextually adverbs.
