    noun vs verb

    some words can be used as verbs and noun. I am confused how to determine a word as noun or verb.

    for exam a word 'talk' is both noun and verb.

    1> there should not be much talk.
    2> there was a talk about him.
    3> if you do that, people will talk
    4> please talk in the evening

    Please help me how to determine a noun and verb in the above sentences.
