Abstract and Concrete Nouns

An abstract noun is usually the name of a quality, action or state considered apart from the object to which it belongs. Abstract nouns are not physical entities and hence cannot be touched; that is why they are called abstract nouns. Some abstract nouns, however, can be observed by one of the other senses.

For example: fitness, honesty, laughter, hatred, childhood.

Concrete nouns refer to physical entities that can usually be touched.

For example: chair, atom, stone, tool.
