    I would like to know if you can help me identify the noun or types of nouns from each word listed below. They can be, proper, common, concrete, abstract or collective nouns. Please Help! Some can have more than one answer and I'm puzzled, since I couldn't get much help from the dictionary.

    1. desk
    2. ocean
    3. love
    4. cat
    5. herd
    6. compassion
    7. reputation
    8. eyes
    9. staff
    10. day
    11. Roosevelt Building
    12. Mr. Timken

    Proper nouns are names.
    Common nouns are not names.
    Concrete nouns are things you can touch.
    Abstract nouns are things you cannot touch.
    Collective nouns are things in groups.

    Please use the definitions above to provide answers for nouns 1. through 15. When you're done, please submit your answers, and we'll take a look at them together.
