Hi I'm new to CXC english, never done it before.
I have started class in September 2010. Its been good, but some of it a little confusing.

Can someone help me with this sentence

"The students make a barrel of noise"

Why is 'barrel' considered a concrete noun and not an abstract noun?

HI everyone. Im preparing to do cxc this may. I want to do descriptive writing in section 3 but my teacher refuses to teach the topic. Any pointers (no matter how complex or simple they may be)?

An abstract noun is a type of noun that refers to something a person cannot physically interact with. A noun is a person, place or thing. However, in many cases, the 'thing' might be an intangible concept – which means it is an abstract form of noun. In this instance, abstract means to exist apart from concrete existence. A noun that is abstract is an aspect, concept, idea, experience, state of being, trait, quality, feeling, or other entity that cannot be experienced with the five senses. While on the other hand CONCERT NOUN is things you can experience. This group of nouns with your five senses: you see them, hear them, smell them, taste them, and feel them.
Ice cream, for example, is a concrete noun. You can see the pink. You can taste the berry flavor. You can feel your tongue growing numb from the cold. Any noun that you can experience with at least one of your five senses is a concrete noun.
Disapproval is an example of an abstract noun. What color is disapproval? You don't know because you cannot see it. What texture is disapproval? Who knows? You cannot touch it. What flavor is disapproval? No clue! You cannot taste it! Does it make a sound? Of course not! Does it smell? Not a bit!

Are you asking whether the noun is a concrete,abstract? or you want to understand the question?

what this question is doing is tricking you.however it is referring to your senses,you can hear the noise.

Caribexams has locked me out of the forum so I cannot contribute as I would like. Why am I unable to log in for long?
