    Capital letters are sometimes referred to as ‘upper case’. This is because manual typesetters kept these letters in the upper drawers of a desk – the upper type case. More frequently used letters were stored on a lower shelf, thus ‘lower case’ letters.

    Every name is called a NOUN,
    As field and fountain, street and town;
    In place of noun the PRONOUN stands
    As he and she can clap their hands;
    The ADJECTIVE describes a thing,
    As magic wand and bridal ring;
    The VERB means action, something done -
    To read, to write, to jump, to run;
    How things are done, the ADVERBS tell,
    As quickly, slowly, badly, well;
    The PREPOSITION shows relation,
    As in the street, or at the station;
    CONJUNCTIONS join, in many ways,
    Sentences, words, or phrase and phrase;
    The INTERJECTION cries out, ‘Hark!
    I need an exclamation mark!’
    Through poetry, we learn how each
    of these make up THE PARTS OF SPEECH.

    Webster’s dislike of words that weren’t pronounced the way they looked led him to decree that words such as centre and theatre should be spelled center and theater; he also dropped the silent u from words such as colour, favour and honour. In fact, Webster was single-handedly responsible for most of the differences between British and American spelling that survive to this day.

    Most comparatives say that something is more or less something than the other something, if you see what we mean. But it is also a comparative to say that something is the same (or not the same) as something else:

    This ring is not as expensive as that one. (I want that one.)
