1. Written language is made up of letters, which stand for sound. The letters of any language are called its Alphabets. The English Alphabet contains twenty-six letters. Letters a, e, i, o, u are called Vowels. The remaining are called Consonants.

Letters have two forms. Capitals and small letters.
Capitals: A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z.
Small: a b c d e f g h u I j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z.

The following words should begin with capitals:
  • The first word of every sentence.
  • The first word of every line of poetry.
  • All proper names: Asad, Lahore, Pakistan.
  • Name of the days of week and of the months of the year: Saturday, Monday etc., April, May etc.
  • The words I and O.
  • Single letters standing for words: BS., M.A.

2. Letters are united to form Words.
Any part of a word that can be sounded at once is called syllable.
The word absent has two syllables, ab and sent. In every syllable there must be at least one Vowel.
Accent is a distinctive way of pronouncing a language. The change in the accent results in the change of the meaning of a word. Nouns and Adjective are generally accented on the first syllable while the verbs are accented on the second syllable.

3. A sentence is any number of words having a full meaning. It always contains a finite verb:
Iqbal was a great poet of Pakistan.

A Clause: It is a sentence which is part of a larger sentence:
This is a house which my father bought.

A Phrase is a group of words that make sense but not a complete sense. It has no finite verb:
On account of, in the long run, on a bicycle.

Every sentence consists of two parts. The Subject i.e. the naming part and the Predicate i.e. The stating part. In the sentence “A goat gives milk” A goat is the Subject and gives milk is the Predicate.
