Journey to the River Sea
Grammar - Common Nouns
There are lots of different types of nouns. A common noun is a person, place, thing or emotion. For example, a doctor is a common noun because a doctor is a type of person. However, it is important to remember that common nouns are not the specific names for people or places, because those are called proper nouns. For example, Dr Twinkle is not a common noun because we are naming a specific doctor, so we call that a proper noun.
Common Noun Examples
Person: basketball player
Place: the park
Emotion - joy
