What is the difference between a noun and a verb isn`t it the same?

  • English -

    Not at all.

    A noun is a person, place, thing, or idea (or concept). This also includes emotions (when properly derived into noun form).

    John, (The) President, Canada, clock, peace, and happiness are all nouns.

    A verb is an action -- what the subject of a sentence does. Note that being is also an action, so if a sentence appears not to have a verb, check for 'is' or 'are'.

    John *tried* to *become* the President of Canada, but *failed* to *collect* the most votes. (Where *word* is a noun).

  • English -

    No, nouns and verbs are not the same.

    Nouns name people, places, things and ideas. Some examples of nouns are:
    girl
    friend
    dog
    house
    school
    patriotism
    flag
    New Jersey
    country
    sky
    Julie

    Verbs show action or state of being. Some examples are:
    is
    are
    jump
    swim
    remember
    study
    try
    sleep

    Take a look at these sentences. The nouns are in bold and the verbs are underlined.

    Mary ran around the gym.
    The dog barked all night.
    My favorite teacher was Mr. O'Hara

  • English -

    Ooops -- the last sentence should be:
    My favorite teacher was Mr. O'Hara.
