Nouns There are 6 different types of nouns.
All nouns will be either 1.Common: general name for a person, place, thing, or an idea. They are not capitalized. OR 2. Proper: the name of a particular person, place, thing, or idea. They are ALWAYS capitalized.
All nouns will be either 3. Concrete: name something that is tangible (can be seen, touched, heard, smelled, or tasted) OR 4. Abstract: names an idea, a condition, or a feeling or something that is not tangible
All nouns will be either 5. Singular: one person, place, thing, or idea OR 6. Plural: more than one person, place, thing, or idea (generally denotes with an s or es at the end of the noun)
Nouns MAY BE one of these: 7. Compound: noun made up of more than one word (railroad, notebook, station wagon) 8. Collective: singular noun that represents a group or collection (team, pack, jury) 9. Gerunds: verbals (ending in –ing) that are working as nouns in a sentence (swimming, running, thinking)
