Nouns: are names given to people, places animals or things.
Example: John lives in the UK with his dog called snoopy who loves to play with his ball.
John is a name of a person, UK is a name of a place, a dog is an animal and ball is a thing.
A proper noun is a name of a person, place or an organization. All proper nouns begin with a capital letter.
Pronoun: is a word that replaces a noun.
Example: ‘He’ replaces John.
Collective nouns: are words given to a group of people, animals or things.
Example: for a group of people in an organization, we say ‘team’. The team is efficient. (not ‘are’)
Example: class of students
Example: Family (consists of more than 2 members)
Remember, when you use a collective noun, use a singular verb and not a plural verb.
Example: Police is followed by a singular verb ‘is’.
Example: A herd of zebras is moving away to escape the lion’s angry roar.
Example: An army of frogs, school of fish,
Example: A bunch of grapes, a clutch of eggs, a dozen of eggs, a deck of cards, a fleet of ship/ planes.
Uncountable nouns: are nouns that you can’t count, like liquids. You can’t count water as 1 water, 2 water. Other uncountable nouns are advice, information, intelligence, garbage.
