Nouns are words that provide names for all people, places and things.
•    common nouns provide names for general people, places and things.
For example:    tourist, island, tent
•    proper nouns provide names for particular people, places and things. They always start with a capital letter.
For example:    Captain Lopez, San Francisco, Boeing 747
•    abstract nouns are names for feelings, ideas or emotions.
For example:    happiness, intelligence, pleasure
•    collective nouns provide names for groups of people, places or things.
For example:    forest, hive, album


Choose from above the noun that goes with each definition.

Then, select whether the noun is common, proper, abstract or collective.


Underline all four nouns in each sentence. Three of them will be of the same type (common, proper, abstract or collective). One will be another type.

Select the type of noun which is the odd one out.


The comma is the most common punctuation mark. It is used to mark a brief pause in a sentence.

A comma is used between the items in a simple list.
For example:    She took her swimsuit, sunglasses, towel, sandals and water bottle to the beach.

Note: ‘and’ usually replaces the comma before the last item in a list.

A comma is used either side of less important information in a sentence to divide it from the main point being expressed.
For example:    He went to meet his best friends, Zeb and Rachel, at the airport.

A comma is used to mark off the person spoken to from the rest of the sentence.
For example:    Waiter, could you please take these empty plates?


Place the commas from above correctly into these sentences.


The commas in these sentences may be misplaced.

Where necessary, move them to where they belong in the sentences.
