Nouns (Naming Words)

Loosely speaking, a noun is a word which gives the name of a person, place or thing. Nouns are often known as 'naming' words. They can be either common, proper, abstract or collective.

A common noun is a noun which is not the name of any particular person, place or thing, e.g. dog, cup, curtain. 

A proper noun is a noun referring to a particular person, place or thing, e.g. David, London, Wednesday. Proper nouns are usually capitalised.

An abstract noun is a noun referring to something which cannot be experienced with any of the five senses, such as an idea, thought or emotion, e.g. happiness, love.

A collective noun is a noun referring to a group or collection of people, creatures or things, e.g. a crowd, a flock of sheep, a bunch of bananas.
