Nouns are words that name people, places, things, or ideas. They are one of the basic building blocks of language and are essential for communication.

There are two main types of nouns: common nouns and proper nouns. Common nouns are general names for people, places, things, or ideas, while proper nouns refer to specific people, places, or things and are always capitalized.

For example:

  • Common noun: dog
  • Proper noun: Snoopy

Nouns can also be categorized by their gender (masculine, feminine, or neuter), number (singular or plural), and case (subjective, objective, or possessive).

Learning and understanding nouns is an important part of developing strong language skills.
