What is a noun? A noun is a word that names person, place, thing, or abstract idea. To give an example of each: Mike, Germany, building, love.

A few more examples in a context:

  • Mike likes ice-creams.
  • Keyboard is broken.
  • Thomas Edison invented light bulbs
  • I enjoy reading a good book.
  • Our neighbors are noisy.
  • The war lasted for many years.

A noun can be singular or plural. Plural forms are created by adding -s or -es (boxes, foxes).
