The award-winning Grammar Girl presents Grammar Pop: A fun word game for adults and a great way for kids to learn parts of speech. Match words with parts-of-speech, pop clouds, and progress from nouns and verbs to gerunds and participles.
The sentences get longer, the parts of speech get harder, and the timer gets shorter as you pop more clouds and advance through the game. You won’t even know you’re learning!

Ratings and Reviews
Great practice tool but needs correcting.
Please fix the definition of action verbs. Action verbs do not describe.
Please see the reviews of others regarding incorrect answers and correct the errors. I would have my students purchase this app if not for errors.
Great Concept—Poor Execution
I see that other users have identified the problems. Where are the fixes? Seriously.
When I first started the game I enjoyed it and was ready to recommend it to all of my LA students. Fortunately, I continued to play before making the recommendation. I love your podcast, and I find you to be an excellent resource for improving language use. This game, however, has several incorrect answers in it. The most common has to do with the verb; it often has the player label the past participle verb as a participle, but the participle should be a verbal used as an adjective. In addition, there are at least two cases in which the game labels an adverb as a preposition when it has no object.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
