2 Parts of Speech 1 Determiner/Article – The article is used to define and modify the noun; Definite Article - (the) or Indefinite Article (a/an). Verb – In languages like English, the verb is the most important part of the sentence. The verb asserts something about the subject of the sentence. It can express actions, events, or states of being. The verb is the nucleus of the predicate of a sentence.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
