CONCRETE NOUNS vs. ABSTRACT NOUNS CONCRETE NOUNS You experience concrete nouns through your five senses: sight, smell, hearing, taste, and touch. If you cannot see, hear, taste, touch, or smell something, it is not a concrete noun. ABSTRACT NOUNS Abstract nouns are like the opposite of concrete nouns. These are nouns that name things you cannot see, smell, taste, hear, or touch. They refer to emotions, ideas, concepts, beliefs, or your state of being. photograph, music, pears, rose, computer, boy, Brooklyn Bridge love, hate, patience, fun, freedom, self-esteem, curiosity, honor, wisdom, Christianity
