    Default Abstract or not?

    Hi everyone, I think that 'day' is an abstract noun. Am I correct? And what about 'air', is that abstract too?
    Many thanks,
    Les

    'Air' has a physical existence, so I wouldn't call it abstract.

    Thank you Tdol. Again you have helped me. I suppose that 'day' is abstract then.
    Again thank you,
