REMEMBER: A noun is the name of a person, place, thing, or idea.
Nouns are pretty simple to identify. Nouns are used as the subject of a sentence. They can also be a direct object, an indirect object, and the object of a preposition. In the sentence ( Wife shops. ), the word, Wife, is the name of a person. It describs who the sentence is about.
A noun is anything that can be visualized physically or mentally.
