Common Nouns Pack 3

Common Nouns Pack 3

A common noun names a person, place, animal, or thing that is not specific. It is not the actual NAMES of people, places, animals or things.

Common noun does not begin with a capital letter unless it is the first word in a sentence. For example, Mom is going to the shop. Here, mom is a common noun but it begins with a capital letter because it is the first word of the sentence.

Common nouns are named as such because they help in differentiating with proper nouns which we will discuss later. For free proper noun worksheets, go here.
