Definition:

A concrete noun refers to objects and substances, including people and animals, that exist physically. They can be either an uncountable noun or a countable noun.

eg: Clocks and watches exist physically and are Concrete Nouns. Time is a concept that has no physical existence; it is not a Concrete Noun but an Abstract Noun.
