English (8th Grade)

posted by .

I can only figure about half of this one out:

Your assignment is to go back and label the parts of speech of each word in this paragraph. The only ones which you do not know are articles (a/the) and determiners (these/those/this/that).

There are: nouns, pronouns, verbs, adverbs, adjectives, prepositions, and conjunctions.

The Sentences:
She strode to a door in the far corner of the office, opened it, and called a name. A boy appeared in the doorway. He sat down at one end off the table. He was brown like us, a plump kid with shiny black hair combed straight back, neat, cool, and faintly obnoxious.

I only know what nouns, verbs, and adjectives are, and have a vague idea on pronouns, adverbs, and conjunctions. No clue what prepositions are.

Could someone explain them to me? I tried Google but it doesn't make much sense.... Thanks in advance....
