To learn how to write correctly and speak fluently it is essential for one to master the grammar of the language. In the English language, a kid’s journey of learning grammar begins with learning the eight parts of speech. The parts of speech dictate how a word functions in meaning as well as grammatically within any sentence.
The noun is the first part of speech taught to kids. It is defined as the name of a place, person, animal, or thing. It names everything from a person, place, thing to a quality, feeling, or animal. It may also refer to any activity. In other words, a noun is a word that refers to any person, thing, animal, place, quality, idea, or action. It can play the role of subject, direct object, indirect object, subject complement, object complement, appositive, or adjective in a sentence. There are several different types of nouns. A noun can be a common or generic noun, (Boy, Girl, Man) proper noun, (Sam, Taj Mahal, India) Abstract noun, (Happiness, Joy, Excitement), or Collective noun (team, family, parliament).
