A noun is a part of speech that names a person, place, thing, idea, action or quality. All nouns can be classified into two groups of nouns: common or proper.
Proper nouns refer to the individual name of a person, place or thing. Examples might include Barcelona, Leonardo da Vinci, or Toyota Corolla.
Common nouns are more generalized by comparison, and they can be further divided into abstract, collective, compound, countable concrete, uncountable concrete and verbal.
HOW TO USE THE (SELECTED ) PART THE SPEECH
Usually understood as a noun tht has an initial capital letter, no matter where it sits in a sentence. The word must be a person, place, thing or idea.
Though while all proper nouns are capitalized, not all capitalized words are proper nouns. Example :
My Italian neighbor likes to cook homemade pasta.
("Italian" might be proper noun, but in this example, it's not a noun, its a proper adjective bcs it's modifying the word "neighbor")
is a wonderful player. ( PERSON)
• I should see
for these persistent headaches. (PERSON )
• I got accepted to
• I ordered the laptop from
• We're going to play baseball in
. ( PLACE )
is one of my favorite places to visit.(PLACE)
Countable nouns can be both singular and plural. They are distinct units that are easily tallied or numbered, like:
, one hundred
, a thousand
A singular countable noun must be preceded by a determiner. These are words that clarify, such as: a, an, the, that, this, one, our, my, and which. Use a countable noun in a sentence like this:
Uncountable nouns, also called non-countable nouns, are singular only. You cannot use "a" or "an" with them; it doesn't make sense to refer to "a water." However, you can use other words to describe their quantity, like:
, tons of fresh
, blades of
Certain quantifiers may be used such as: a lot, any, some, and too much. Here are some example sentences with uncountable nouns:

Concrete nouns represent something physical that can be experienced through the senses. They can be common, proper, singular, plural, countable, uncountable, or collective. Examples include:
These nouns can be tasted, touched, seen, heard, or smelled. They're definitive, specific entities, as opposed to things we can't actually touch, like air or love.
1.I hope we have
for dinner tonight.
2.She bought a new fountain
Abstract nouns refer to things that aren't concrete. They cannot be seen, touched, heard, smelled, or tasted. They refer to emotions, ideas, concepts, traits, experiences, or states of being. Examples include:
These nouns stand in stark contrast to concrete nouns. We'll never be able to touch or hold them in a literal sense. Here are some example sentences with abstract nouns.
