8 Types of Nouns

Common and Proper Nouns :

Common and Proper Nouns A common noun names any person, place, thing or idea. Examples: My book is on the table. Tamika went to school early this morning. A proper noun names a specific person, place, thing or idea. Examples: My book, Long Walk to Freedom , is on the table. Tamika goes to Oglethorpe Elementary.

Singular and Plural Nouns:

Singular and Plural Nouns A singular noun names one person, place, thing or idea. Examples: My pencil is broken. May I borrow a piece of paper ? A plural noun names more than one person, place, thing or idea. Examples: My pencils are broken. My papers are scattered around the floor.

Possessive Nouns:

Possessive Nouns A possessive noun shows ownership. It uses an apostrophe (‘) or an apostrophe plus an –s on the end. Examples: The boys’ basketball team is walking down the hall. I borrowed my sister’s shirt.

Concrete and Abstract Nouns:

Concrete and Abstract Nouns A concrete noun names a material thing, person, or place. It is something that can be physically touched. Examples: A parade began at 7 o’clock to celebrate the Fourth of July . An abstract noun names ideas, feelings, or qualities. They cannot be physically touched. Examples: Lynn wept in sorrow over the loss of her dog.

Collective Nouns:

Collective Nouns Collective nouns name a group or collection of people, places, things or ideas. They are considered one unit and so they are singular.
