    could you please tell me whether the word 'hour' is an abstract noun or common noun?

    Default Re: grammar

    When it comes to nouns, there are two major categories:

    Category 1: Proper versus Common
    Category 2: Concrete versus Abstract

    The word hour is a common noun and an abstract noun.


    Note,
    You classify concrete and abstract nouns by their ability to register on your five senses. If you can see, hear, smell, taste, or feel the item, it's a concrete noun. If, however, you cannot experience the item with any of your senses, it's abstract. Read more here ...
