Grammar Corner: Nouns

What is a noun?

The common answer is normally “A person, place, thing or idea.”  I categorize animals as a thing but some people will add that to definition of a noun.

Nouns  can be common like “girl”  or proper like “Mary”.

They can be items you can touch like a table or ideas like “rules”, “fear”, ” and “dreams.”

Nouns are used as subjects, direct objects, indirect objects, objects of prepositions, predicate nominatives, and object complements.

Mary and her friend Eric drove her car by the school while they were in Arizona.
