Flashcard Content Overview

A concrete noun is a person, place or thing that physically exists in our world. You can experience them with your five senses (see, smell, taste, hear and feel). While the noun 'basketball' is a concrete noun that you can see and feel, the noun 'idea' is not something you can physically pick up or point to. 'Idea' is not a concrete noun.

It can be tricky to determine whether a noun is concrete or not. When using the flashcards in this set and analyzing nouns, ask yourself some of the following questions. If the answer is yes to some of these, it's probably a concrete noun.

  • Can it be lifted, thrown, knocked over, broken or touched?
  • Could you say to someone, 'Go take a picture of it?'
  • Is it something you could find in a store?
  • Could you show it to somebody?
