Concrete vs. Abstract Nouns
  • A concrete noun is a noun that can be experienced
    with your five senses. You can touch, smell,
    see, hear or taste a concrete noun.
  • An abstract noun can not be experienced with your
    five senses. An abstract noun exists, but you
    cannot see it, taste it, smell it, touch it or
    hear it.

Walsh Publishing Co. 2009

Concrete Nouns
  • A concrete noun can be experienced with one or
    more of your five senses.
  • An orange is a concrete noun. You can see an
    orange, taste one, smell one, touch one.
  • A whistle is a concrete noun. You can hear it
    and see hit and touch it.

sentences.

computer.

Abstract Nouns
Abstract nouns arent detected by your five
senses. Honesty is an example of an abstract
noun. What color is honesty? You don't know
because you cannot see it. What texture is
honesty? Who knows? You cannot touch it. What
flavor is honesty? No clue! You cannot taste it!
Does it make a sound? Of course not! Does it
smell? Not a bit! Honesty is an abstract noun!
  • Other abstract nouns anger, peace, hate, pride,
  • sympathy, bravery, success, courage, beauty,
    fun, loyalty
  • pain, knowledge, trust, education, friendship,
    intelligence

Possessive Nouns

Walsh Publishing Co. 2009
41
Possessive Nouns
  • A possessive noun is a noun that shows
    ownership. To possess means to own or to have.

I am Bob and this is my towel.
Walsh Publishing Co. 2009
42
Possessive Nouns
  • To show ownership, an apostrophe is used.
  • Most people have a hard time putting the
    apostrophe in the correct place!
  • The rule for the apostrophe depends on whether
    the noun is singular or plural.

Walsh Publishing Co. 2009
43
Possessive Singular Nouns
  • Use an apostrophe with -s for possessives of
    singular nouns. SINGULAR MEANS ONE.
  • Use an apostrophe plus -s to show the possessive
    form of a singular noun, even if that singular
    noun already ends in -s
  • Franks crayon
  • my friends dad
  • Robert Frosts poetry
  • today's weather report
  • the boss's problem
  • Star Jones's talk show
  • That boys shirt

I am one boy and this is my shirt.
Walsh Publishing Co. 2009
44
Possessive Plural Nouns
  • Use an apostrophe without an -s for most
    possessives plural nouns. PLURAL MEANS MORE THAN
    ONE.
  • To form the possessive of a plural noun that
    already ends in -s, add an apostrophe
  • the girls' swing set (the swing set belonging to
    the girls)
  • the students' projects (the projects belonging to
    the students)
  • the Johnsons' house (the house belonging to the
    Johnsons)
  • If the plural noun does not end in -s, add an
    apostrophe plus -s
  • women's conference (the conference belonging to
    the women)
  • the children's toys (the toys belonging to the
    children)
  • the men's training camp (the training camp
    belonging to the men)

Walsh Publishing Co. 2009
45
Singular Possessive vs. Plural Possessive
  • Basically.

The project belonging to more than one student
(plural) The students project The apostrophe
comes after the s.
The project belonging to one student
(singular) The students project The apostrophe
comes before the s.
Walsh Publishing Co. 2009
46
Singular Possessive vs. Plural Possessive
  • Finally.

The shoes belonging to many women WOMENS
SHOES The apostrophe comes before the s because
the noun is a collective group and has no s on
the end. It would be ladies shoes if the base
word was lady. Ladys shoes (the shoes
belonging to one lady) Ladies shoes (the shoes
belonging to more than one lady.
The shoes belonging to one woman WOMANS
SHOES
