Abstract of the volume

How to define the noun? What is a verb? Should a pronoun be made a separate category from a noun? Why is the article a recognised category only in some languages? At what point has the adjective been made a separate class of words? Can interjections be found in all languages? Are there universal word classes? Why does the number of parts of speech vary from one language to another?
