    The Concrete Noun

    No, it is not. You can not experience a country with your five senses. Or can you?

    I am not a teacher.

    The name of a country is a proper noun. Proper nouns are people: Jane, John, etc. Places: Paris, United States, Canada. Names of particular holidays: Christmas, Easter, Hannukah,

    Wealth is an abstract noun, gold is a concrete noun.
    Weather is an abstract noun, hurricane is a concrete noun.

    Well, that could become a debate........... I can see a country, or at least part of it, I can smell part of it etc. etc.

    It depends on how we look at a country. I am not big on philosophy.

    I am not a teacher either, but considering that this is a website on the proper use of the English language, and visited by people who seem to be very interested in learning it, I would suggest that you don't use texting trash when asking a question.
