Nouns

Introduction

Day 1

Introduction

Welcome to Ms. Joule’s Language Corner fashioned by Julian Martin. This website was produced primarily to assist students in understanding and building on their writing convention skills as they target English as a second language being learnt. First, I’ll seek to facilitate your knowledge and effective usage of parts of speech in relation to word usages. There are eight parts of speech, namely; nouns, verbs, pronouns, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions, conjunctions and interjections. We will be beginning with nouns. Nouns are everywhere!

Are you aware that nouns are simply names? Yes, nouns are the names of people, places, animals, ideas and things (animals are sometimes included in the things’ category). Nouns are also of different types. These include:

  Singular = only one ((bag)    Plural = more than one (bags)

Common = general (person)    Proper = specific (Mr. Martin)

Concrete = physical (chair)     Abstract = idea or quality (love)

Countable = singular or plural form countable (car, cars)    Uncountable = singular form

uncountable (water)    Collective = group (team)                                

Stay connected as we are about to explore the intriguing world of names.Female emoticon smiling

Now, let us quickly review what was done:

  • Nouns

Nouns are words that name people, places, animals, ideas and things. They are the names used in the part of a sentence (the subject), that the rest of the sentence (the predicate), speaks about. For example, “John is my best friend”. Who is said to be someone’s best friend? John, he is the person named in the sentence that is talked about.

 

  • Nouns can be of different types. They mainly lie in the two broad categories of proper nouns and common nouns, with subsets of singular, plural, concrete, abstract, countable, uncountable, and collective nouns. These other types will be dealt with in subsequent lessons. Image result for free smiling faces

 

  • Common nouns and Proper nouns

Common nouns name any person, place, thing, or idea. They are not capitalized unless they come at the beginning of a sentence. Proper nouns are the names of specific people, places, things, or ideas. Proper nouns should always be capitalized.

For example:

Common                    Proper

boy                       Anthony

river                      Mississippi River

town                     Linstead

car                        Ford
