    What is a noun?

    A noun is the part of speech that names a person, place, thing, or idea. In sentences, nouns generally function as subjects or as objects.*

    To some of you, the word “love” may seem a little tricky. But in fact, “love” can actually be used as a noun and a verb. It is a state of being. For example, I have love for my family. It can also be used as a verb: Cats love mice.
