Noun and noun phrase

Noun and Noun Phrase

  • A noun is a word used to name a person, animal, place, thing, and abstract idea. Nouns are usually the first words which small children learn.

  • Proper Nouns & Common Noun

  • You always write a proper noun with a capital letter, since the noun represents the name of a specific person, place, or thing.

  • A common noun is a noun referring to a person, place, or thing in a general sense -- usually, you should write it with a capital letter only when it begins a sentence.

Noun clause

Noun clause1


  • If a clause can stand alone as a sentence, it is an independent clause, as in the following example:

    * Independent: The Prime Minister is in Ottawa

  • Some clauses, however, cannot stand alone as sentences: in this case, they are dependent clauses or subordinate clauses. Consider the same clause with the subordinating conjunction "because" added to the beginning:

    * Dependent: Whenthe Prime Minister is in Ottawa, …
