    next can be either an adverb or an adjective

    next move - adjective
    move next - adverb

    or even a verb - NEXT!!!
    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    Or a noun or a preposition.

    move next - adverb
    No, in this case it is an adjective -- "move next (i)". I explained this already.

    or even a verb - NEXT!!!
    That's a noun.
