    Right... I THIIIIIIIIINK a general noun is a noun which is non-specific (eg People are strange... people in general) whereas a specific noun is, well, specific (eg The people in that room are French). Other examples are - Food is good for you. (food in general) and - The food in the fridge has gone off (specifying WHICH food). Don't know if this'll be of any help...
