What is concrete and abstract nouns

An abstract noun is a type of noun that refers to ideas, qualities, emotions, or concepts that cannot be perceived through the senses. Unlike concrete nouns, which represent physical objects that can be seen, heard, touched, tasted, or smelled, abstract nouns are intangible and exist in the realm of thoughts and feelings.

Concrete nouns refer to things that have a physical presence and can be directly experienced or observed. Examples of concrete nouns include "dog," "car," "book," "tree," and "table." These nouns can be perceived through the senses and have a tangible existence.

On the other hand, abstract nouns represent concepts, attributes, or qualities that are not physical or concrete. They express ideas, emotions, states, or conditions. Examples of abstract nouns include "love," "happiness," "truth," "bravery," "freedom," and "knowledge." These nouns cannot be perceived through the senses but are instead felt or understood.

In summary, concrete nouns represent physical objects, while abstract nouns represent intangible concepts, ideas, emotions, or qualities that cannot be directly observed or sensed.
