What is a concrete-noun?


Nouns fall into two types -- concrete and abstract:

If the noun represents a person, place, or thing (something you can see or touch or smell or ???), it's considered a concrete noun.

If the noun represents an idea (something you cannot see or touch or smell or ???), it's considered an abstract noun.
