    Re: Nouns

    You need to look at their function and distribution. For example,

    Do nouns function as subjects and/or objects?
    Do nouns function as direct objects and indirect objects?

    What about verbs? Do nouns function as verbs?
    Do nouns function as adverbs?

    Can nouns be modified?
    If so, by adjectives and/or adverbs?
    Can nouns function as modifiers?
    What's the word-order?

    Are all nouns the same or do they belong to different classes?
    When reading a sentence or hearing a phrase, how do we know a noun is a Noun?

    Can nouns be inflected? If so, what are the morphemes?
    What's the difference between plural "sheep" and plural "books"?
    What about, "the dog's house" and "the Jones' house"? Why -'s and -s'?

    "A noun doesn't/isn't/can't _______".
