(Person, Place, Animal, Idea, Event…  “Things”)

Nouns - GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!

Nouns Are The Most Common Words In The Common Tongue Of The English Language

“What Is A Noun?”

| GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!he Word:  “Noun” — is a Grammatical Term which is most-commonly referred to as one of the Parts of Speech or “Word-Classes” in Traditional English Grammar.  However — both of the classifications are faulty and illogical.  So — in The Common Tongue — we, instead, use the term Grammatical Unit.  Specifically — A Noun is one of the Base Grammatical Units.

“What Determines If A Word Is A Noun?”

| GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!ouns are Words which refer to “Things”.  More specifically to:  “People”, “Places”, “Animals”, “Objects”, “Phenomenon”, “Ideas”, & “Events”.  And all of those can be classified as “Things”.  So to simplify — we can say that Nouns refer to “Things”.  And that “Thing” can be something “real” which you can touch or experience (“tangible” or “intangible”).  Or it can be a thought in your head.

| GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!ow…  It must be noted — in case you read somewhere else that:  “Nouns Are Things” — this is what we call “Bad English”.  Because — while the statement is factually true — it is not what people mean when they say or write this.  It is true that a “Noun” is a “Thing”.  It is a concept of Grammar.  But you can not hold a Noun in your hand.

| GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!ut what people mean when they say this is that — “The Term Noun Is Used To Represent ‘Things’ — Either Physical Or Non-Physical”.  And there are actually a number of different further classifications of Nouns — to represent all the different types of “Things”.
