Hi reader(s) of my blog……..good morning.
This blog is prepared for either beginners or those who are good in understanding English. I did on purpose writing all expressions in English. But if it so required, I’d be glad to do it in bahasa.
I’m sure all of you know that WORDS are classified according to the work they do. Look at the following order:
Nouns — the names of things
Pronouns — the he, me, them words
Verbs — the action words
Adjectives — the describing words
Adverbs — the how, when, where words
Prepositions — a.o. the to, in, at words
Now some expressions of those mentioned above:
NOUNS — A noun is the name of something: a thing or a person or a place, or even a feeling or a state of mind, such as “house, Jane, happiness, pencils, Paris”, etc.
There are four kinds of nouns:
- Common nouns — are the names of ordinary things wee can see and touch: e.g. house, chicken, banana, boy, town.
- Proper nouns — are the names of particular or special things or persons or places — they should have an initial capital: e.g. Bandung, Johnny, Idul Fitri, January.
- Collective nouns — are names for groups of things or people: e.g.family, class, group, public, team.
- Abstract nouns — are the names of things we can’t touch or put it somewhere : usually we use these ones without putting any definite/indefinite articles “a”, “an” or “the”: e.g. pain, pleasure, sunshine, kindness, beauty.
