wat is a noun

after all these years i have forgotten

Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. A good dictionary will always help you and here is what my Online Dictionary says for noun:

Date: 14th century
: any member of a class of words that typically can be combined with determiners to serve as the subject of a verb, can be interpreted as singular or plural, can be replaced with a pronoun, and refer to an entity, quality, state, action, or concept

determiner = adjective

simply put, anything that "names" = book, pencil, paper, etc.

thank u
