GRAMMAR TIP:What Is A Noun?
In linguistics, a noun is a member of a large, open lexical category whose members can occur as the main word in the subject of a clause, the object of a verb, or the object of a preposition (or put more simply, a noun is a word used to name a person, animal, place, thing or abstract idea). Lexical categories are defined in terms of how their members combine with other kinds of expressions. The syntactic rules for nouns differ from language to language. In English, nouns may be defined as those words which can occur with articles and attributive adjectives and can function as the head of a noun phrase. In traditional English grammar, the noun is one of the eight parts of speech. Noun comes from the Latin nōmen "name", a translation of Ancient Greek ónoma.

There are many different types of worksheets in this section on nouns. Teachers approach the topic in a variety of ways which has resulted in 379 noun worksheets being posted on this page. There are some subsections which may help you find what you are looking for more easily. Here is an example of one of the noun worksheets available. It is for complete beginners and, due to the fact that it relies on images, younger students. The worksheet is to help students practice forming plural nouns and contains both regular and irregular nouns. Other worksheets focus on countable and uncountable nouns, possessive forms, and other noun related topics. Take a look around to see what Busy Teacher can offer.
A noun is the name of a person, place, or thing; as one of the fundamental building blocks of English, your students will be learning a lot of them. When introducing new vocabulary use flashcards with clear images that indicate the meaning of the words, drill nouns with articles during pronunciation practice, and be sure to test individual pronunciation and comprehension before asking students to complete further activities. Students will have to learn the difference between countable and uncountable nouns, regular and irregular plural noun forms, and the possessive forms. While this may seem like an immense amount of material, you can and should break it down into sections that your students will find more manageable.
