What’s the difference between a concrete noun and an abstract noun? What’s that I hear you cry? Who cares? Stay with me. I’m attempting to perform a public service.
A concrete noun is a noun that can be seen, smelt, tasted, touched, heard. So,
I wore a nice watch to the party. Watch is a concrete noun.
Trickier to recognise, an abstract noun is an idea or feeling such as love, happiness, confidence, grief, boredom, frustration. So,
The crowd was amazed at his bravery in front of goal. Bravery is an abstract noun.
Now, aren’t you glad you know that?
