Mr. Jones, Bill, Larisa, Chicago, Florida... These are all proper nouns. There are many rules and examples! En easy way to remember a proper noun is to know that there is usually just "One"! Speak more with Billgreen54!
Collectives represent a group! They are uncountable! In other words, we can't use an "S" to form a plural! Furniture, money, electronics, fruit, vegetables are all collective nouns. Have fun with Billgreen54!
Gerunds are verbs that act like nouns! We do this by adding "ing" to a verb after a state verb! An example would be "I like walking with Larisa" Like is a state verb while walking is now a noun known as a gerund!
Nouns are just nouns, right? Not really! There are many types of nouns. A compound noun is two nouns put together. A compound noun can also be a word created with a noun and adjective! Learn more with Billgreen54!
Most ESL students never learn the term "Present Participle". Why is that? Teachers just don't think of teaching English grammar terminology most of the time. Present participle is simply "ing". Speak more with Billgreen54!

Verbs are used so many ways in English! Most nouns are verbs and many verbs are nouns. Remember that a word is just a word until you decide how to use it. Is it an action? Is it a thing? Billgreen54 teaches more!
