The present lesson explores another type of nouns: concrete nouns. This should be a straightforward lesson.
What is a concrete noun?
A concrete noun is a noun that is used to refer to material objects rather than abstract qualities, states of being, or action. Concrete nouns refer to things that you can see, smell, hear, taste, and/or touch.
If you come across any noun, ask yourself if it refers to something that you can either see, smell, hear, taste, or touch. If it does refer to any such thing, you’ve got yourself a concrete noun.
