Nouns: Words that Name People, Places, and Things
Nouns are the words we use to name people, places, and things. They can be singular (one), or plural (more than one). Nouns can be concrete (things we can touch and see) or abstract (ideas that we can't touch or see). Nouns can be common (table, dog, school) or proper (New York, John, Tuesday).
Did you know?
Most nouns ending in '-s' are actually plural. For example, 'tomatoes' is actually a plural noun, not a singular one. Nouns can be classified as either abstract or concrete. Abstract nouns are ideas, feelings, or qualities, such as 'freedom' or 'happiness'. Concrete nouns are objects and people, such as 'chair' or 'person'.
