Noun Questions and Answers (Q&A)

Let's see how far my knowledge stretches

Suffixes are one or more letters, words which are added at the end of a word to modify the word's meaning. -Or and -er are examples of suffixes which when added to another word can change or modify the meaning of the word completely. For example, when you add -or to words like advise, protect, direct, it becomes advisor, protector and director. Also when you add -er to words like play, it becomes player. This shows it has changed the meaning of the word 'play' which is a verb to 'player' which is a noun.


Another difference is that, both -or and -er are used to differentiate between American English and British English. There are so many words in America English which are not acceptable in British English. For example, advise is a verb, but advisor can only be acceptable in America English if it is written as adviser, while adviser can only be acceptable in British English if it is written as advisor.

The term "anything in moderation" may have been coined for all the people who love blue cheese. One of the major problems with it is that it is extremely high in fat and calories. A single ounce of the smelly stuff has one hundred calories, which is about five percent of the average person's daily allowance. It also contains a high amount of sodium, which can also be detrimental to your health. However, in small amounts it is good for you. Blue cheese has some valueable nutritional benefits if it is eaten in moderation.

It contains a high amount of protein and vitamin B-12. One ounce of blue cheese has six grams of protein, which helps your immune system and repairs tissues in the body. The B-12 helps to regenerate red blood cells and it helps aid the nervous system. Blue cheese is also rich in minerals such as calcium and phosphorus. These minerals help your bones and can even help balance your hormone levels. This stinky stuff is great for you in moderation. Add a sprinkle of it to a salad to derive a powerhouse of nutritional benefits.

The answer to this is furniture. Furniture is one of the nouns that only have a singular form. This means that even if you are trying to state that you have to purchase different items, you can only use the singular form of the noun. There are still other items that fall under this category such as luggage that people normally make a mistake with. The news is another example.

Even if you want to state that you have watched the news, this does not mean that you only watched one story. It may mean that you have watched the whole news show but because you are using the singular form of the noun, you still need to use news.

A noun is typically referred to as a person, place, or thing. It can be plural, possessive, proper, or a pronoun. Examples of these are 'girl,' which is a non-descript female, 'girls,' which refers to multiple non-descript females, 'girl's,' which means the girl owns or is possession of something. 'Sarah,' would be a proper noun, because it is a girl's name, and the word 'she' is considered a pronoun.

Adjectives are words that can be used to describe something, usually a noun: that girl is happy. Happy would be the adjective describing the noun (girl.) Finally, adverbs are words that describe how something is done and usually end in the letters 'ly.' One exception to this rule is the word 'well.' When someone asks HOW you are doing, the grammatically correct answer would be, 'well.'

The list of words that can act as both noun and adjective is much. Keep in mind that a noun refers to a name of a person, place, thing or idea while an adjective is use to describe a noun or other adjectives. When a noun is use to describe another noun, the first noun in the sentence or phrase is regarded as an adjective.

For example, 'Book Shop'. 'Book' in the context acts as an adjective. It describes what is sold in the shop. A sentence can have more than one noun acting as adjective. Example - America football team. 'Team' is the noun in this context and 'America football' act as the adjective because the two words describe the team. Here are a few more examples: leather bag, Estate Manager, tennis racket.
