Answer:

All is NOUNS!

Explanation:

Everything is noun.

Like, those verbs have no noun form they themselves are nouns!

Problem lies elsewhere, a single word of English can be different parts of speech by functioning in a particular sentence.

I assume those students in this site, all know the basic definition of all parts of speech--but the problem arises at the intermediate level if you can't make morphology of a sentence or part of speech that is most important to have understood the "inner beauties of grammars"
for all inquisitive minds specially for advanced level learners.

Like
As you sow so you reap.

Can you guess here "as" which part of speech?

As--here is a conjunction.

I don't think he could understand the diagnosis of a sentence easily as his poor ability of understanding of basic grammars!

As--here is a preposition, etc.
