Are all subjects like History, Music,Science, English are Abstract Nouns? Why?
The subjects are. They don't exist in the real word. They don't have size or weight or smell (except in figurative contexts - like 'let's move on to a more weighty subject' [where 'weighty' = 'serious'])
PS Hint: this has been discussed here many times before. http://www.usingenglish.com/forum/se...searchid=94298
