Each of these sections focuses on different aspects of the English language, such as the sounds and pronunciation, word formation and structure, sentence formation and structure, meaning and interpretation, language use in social contexts, and the psychological processes involved in language production and comprehension.

    Explanation
    The given words "Ouch," "Um," and "Oh" are not conjunctions. They are interjections, which are words or phrases used to express strong emotions or reactions. Conjunctions, on the other hand, are words that connect words, phrases, or clauses in a sentence. Therefore, the correct answer is false.

    C. Faster
    Explanation
    "Faster" is an adverb because it modifies the verb "hurry" by indicating the speed at which the action is performed. Adverbs typically describe how, when, where, or to what extent an action is done, and "faster" fits this description by specifying the speed at which someone hurries.
