    Re: Noun

    The words "delay" and "matter" can be both a noun and a verb. The other words in a sentence will help you determine how they are being used. What do you mean by "what type of noun"? They are both common nouns so they are not capitalised.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Noun

    May I say that delay and matter is abstract noun (which we can't see or touch) under common noun?

    Can you please give an example where the delay is used as the verb? Using "the" is correct to use before verb? I assume verb word is noun here?
