What is termed minor parts of speech is also regarded as closed classes or closed class items. Closed as opposed to open classes are fixed and cannot admit more new mei’bers of the same class. Examples of the closed classes are Pronouns, prepositions, conjunctions, determiners and interjections. Further investigation will reveal that practically it is rare to invent a new pronoun or articles or even conjunctions. One need not be deceived by the name minor parts of speech because a lot of grammatical blunders are committed by their incorrect usage in sentence construction and as such, there is every need to pay serious attention to their correct usage.
