What is a noun? Here is my definition:


A noun of is a word or group of words that refer to something

I believe that every noun corresponds to a thing. Daily life is filled with many different things and our culture has decided to name those things with nouns. I also believe that nouns are more fundamental than verbs and adjectives. The noun is the thing itself, while verbs and adjectives describe the thing.
