Types Of Nouns
Types of Nouns
|Names a non-specific person, place, or thing. Common nouns are never capitalized. More abstract ideas can also be common nouns, like thoughts, ideas, and concepts.
|Proper nouns give a specific name to a common noun, and therefore are ALWAYS CAPITALIZED.
|Collective nouns represent a group or collection of things, like a jar or a bar or a loaf.
|Compound nouns are simply nouns made by joining two or more words to make a new word. They’re often descriptive of what the item’s purpose is, but sometimes make no sense!
|When you use your five senses, you are most likely experiencing a concrete noun. If you can see, hear, smell, taste, or touch it, it’s a concrete noun.
|Abstract nouns are those that name feelings, ideas, concepts, or characteristics that cannot be felt with your senses.
|Countable nouns are those that you can actually count. If you can put an article in front of the noun, such as a, an, or the, then it is countable.
|Uncountable nouns are things you cannot quantify, like feelings or emotions or abstract concepts. In general, you can divide these into mass and abstract.
