What is a noun?

Nouns make up the largest class of words in most languages, including English. A noun is a word that refers to a thing ( book ), a person ( Betty Crocker ), an animal ( cat ), a place ( Omaha ), a quality ( softness ), an idea ( justice ), or an action ( yodeling ). It’s usually a single word, but not always: cake , shoes , school bus , and time and a half are all nouns.

Countable and Uncomfortable nouns

  • In most cases for countable nouns we add e/s at the end. E.g girls and clothes
    Those ending with fe like, knife, wife take -ves like, wives, knives

  • Those ending with -f also change to -ves eg half/halves, hoof/hooves

  • Some irregular nouns like man/men.

  • Some take the same form for both singular and plural e.g sheep/sheep, fish/fish

Showing Possession for ownership of with nouns
We add 's at the end. E.g Ronny’ s idea to show ownership.
Many owners are shown by the addition of the apostrophe after the words
e.g The hotels’ owners are happy this season.
