A Perfect Sentence

Some consider learning grammar a sentence beyond the realm of “reasonable punishment”, but the Grammar Anarchist says “Phooey and balderdash!” Grammar is easy as pie when you pick up the basics. The following sentence contains all the parts of speech. Can you identify them?

Hungered by eons of fasting, Adam slowly but (ugh!) eagerly 
reached for the very juicy apple.

Give it a try before checking the comments for my answers. (Yours could be different and remain acceptable.)
