Nouns
A noun is the name of a person, place, thing or idea. Nouns are almost always the first words children are taught. There are several types of nouns including:
Common nouns- these are the least complex and are simply the names of a person, place, thing or idea.
Proper nouns- are the actual names of the people, places, things or ideas. They are more specific, and are ALWAYS capitalized.
Concrete nouns- people, places, things or ideas that we can experience with any of our five senses. The vast majority of nouns are concrete nouns.
Abstract nouns- are the exact opposite to concrete nouns, meaning that they are feelings, concepts, experiences, ideas or qualities that you cannot experience with any of your five senses.
Collective nouns- name a group of individuals. They can be animals, beasts, people or things.
