This lesson covers the fundamentals and types of nouns, knowledge of which will help you in B-school entrance exams like the NMAT, SNAP and IIFT.
So, let’s get started!
Noun: A noun is a word that is used to name a person, animal, place, thing, or an abstract idea. Nouns tell you about the ‘what’s’ ‘who’s’ and ‘where’s’ of a sentence. Let’s see an example: TG and Dagny went to Maxims to order a chocolate truffle cake.
TG and Dagny are persons, Maxims is a place and chocolate truffle cake is a thing.
Nouns can be broadly classified into
- Common nouns
- Proper nouns
- Concrete Nouns
- Abstract Nouns
- Countable Nouns
- Non-Countable Nouns
- Collective Nouns
