On parts of speech

Robie: I only regret one thing.

Danielle: That you never asked me to marry you?

Robie: No. That I ever took the time to teach you English.

Danielle: You only taught me the nouns. I learned the adjectives myself.

Robie: The word cat is a noun.

Danielle: Not the way you use it. For you it means excitement, danger, affluence.

(All three of which words, by the bye, are nouns.)
