types of nouns

A noun is the name of a person, place, thing, or idea. There are singular nouns
that name ONE person (player), place (room), thing (towel), or idea (love), and
there are plural nouns that are the names for MORE THAN ONE person (play-
ers), place (rooms), thing (towels), or idea (loves).

There are other types of nouns that are good to know. They include the
following.

Common nouns begin with a lowercase (or small) letter since they
name any person, place, thing, or idea. They are nonspecific. Some sin-
gular common nouns include actor (person), lounge (place), stick (thing),
and kindness (idea). Plural common nouns include men (persons), head-
quarters (places), computers (things), and liberties (ideas).

Proper nouns begin with an uppercase (or capital) letter because they
name specific persons, places, things, and ideas. Proper nouns include
President Harry Truman (person), Eiffel Tower (place), American Federation
of Teachers (thing), and Theory of Relativity (idea).

Concrete nouns name a person, place, thing, or idea that can be perceived
by one or more of your senses (seeing, hearing, touching, tasting,
and smelling). Popcorn, thunder, rainfall, skunk, windmill, and hair are
concrete nouns.

Abstract nouns name an idea, feeling, quality, or trait. Examples
of abstract nouns include pity, weakness, humility, and elation.

Collective nouns name a group of people or things. Some collective
nouns are squad, assembly, team, jury, flock, and herd.

  • Tips to succeed in an Interview

    Plan your journey

    It is astounding how many people turn up late for an interview, because they got lost. Know the address, print out a map and if possible do a trial run so you know exactly how long it will take to get there. Always take the main reception telephone number with you, in case of an emergency, and give yourself plenty of time.
    Once the interview itself arrives, make sure you follow the lead of the interviewer. Dont try to use all the examples you have, just keep to the point and ensure your answers are relevant. An interview isnt all about being reactive. Try to get the interviewer to tell you what skills they are looking for early on and make a mental note of any information that they give you. This way you can tailor your answers accordingly and ensure you say what they want to hear.
