Let’s be specific. That’s what nouns do; they name the person place or thing in our writing.

Nouns might be a brother, mother or dad; school, city or park; or a dog, hammer or computer.

A noun can also name an idea, concept or personality trait such as time, friendship or courage.

Types of Nouns include:

  1. Common Noun – A general type of person, Place or thing.
  2. Proper Noun – Names a particular person or specific thing.
  3. Singular Noun – Names only one person or thing.
  4. Plural Noun – names two or more persons or things.
  5. Collective Noun – names groups: team, choir, jury.
  6. Concrete Noun – names something that can be seen, heard, touched, tasted or smelled.
  7. Abstract noun – names concepts or ideas.

The noun helps the reader to see what you write by forming a picture in their mind.
