What is NOUN?

noun is the name of a person, place, thing, or idea.

Anything that exists, we assume, can be named, and that name is a noun, therefore nouns are naming words. The thing includes all objects that we can see, touch, hear, smell or taste and anything that we can think of but cannot perceive through our senses.

So a noun will be the name for something we can touch (e.g., pen, book, cow, lion, computer), and name for something we cannot touch, but we can think like, smell, taste, listen (e.g., bravery, mile, joy).
