Transcript of Nouns
Singular nouns are nouns that only identify one person, place, or thing. They are also subjects and objects.
Plural nouns are nouns that refer to multiple people, places, and things.
Plural nouns are formed by adding an "s" to singular nouns, but if the noun ends in "sh","ch", "x", or "s", you add an "es".
If the word ends in "y" with a consonant before it, then you drop the "y" and add an "ies".
There are also irregular plural nouns such as children, women, men, people, mice, geese, and more.
Common nouns are nouns that are very general and unspecific.
Common nouns should be capitalized only when it is the first word of a sentence or if it is part of a title.
You can make a common noun possessive by simply adding an "'s" (apostrophe s).
A proper noun is a noun that names specific person, place, thing, or idea.
Proper nouns are almost always capitalized. Some capitalized proper nouns are: specific names, titles, months, days, geographical locations, and more.
