What is a Noun

I guess we will find out on Get It On on Tuesday night.

  1. Idiot! It is person, thing, place or idea.

    Yes, "Idiot!" is indeed a noun! As is "noun"!

    But...

    what about proper nouns? What about plural nouns?

    If one precedes the noun with an adjective, is the noun then invalid?

    (i.e., the adjective invalid, not the noun invalid).

    I think we should ask Gaie. (Proper noun).

  7. Aww, I'm so pleased Gaie. Recommending anything always has an element of risk!

    My Dad along with his sisters and wee brother were always packed off every July from Shieldhall to Stornoway during the 20's & 30's by boat!
    Once there he'd be sent to Portnaguran, his paternal Grandparents (the authors Aunt) with others going Upper Bayble the maternal Grandparents who weren't so rough & ready according to my Gran ;-)

    Growing up the stories always had a resonance to me with Aesop's Fable Town Mouse Country Mouse.

      Mr Norrie, we are kinda the same age & I will not go toe to toe with a man from the Black Isle BUT the crank wasn't stolen by the vandals but rotated the gears causing the lever to move the stop sign against the boot that kicked the bucket containing the steel ball that rolled down the rickety stairs & into the gutter which then nudged the helping hand rod through the thing-a-ma-jig causing the BOWLING BALL to fall through the bath & onto the diving board projecting the auld man up & into the wash tub causing the cage to fall... MOUSETRAP! in a mid-Atlantic accent ;-)

    I had a wee peek at the playlist, and I have to inform y'all that Kiss is a verb.

    Stupidest theme ever, and they still managed to mess up.

    (That's mess the verb, not mess the noun).

      Lord Watson was considered and rejected, having burned an Olympic flag at the rehearsal.

      When accused by the I.O.C. of arson, he responded by calling Jacques Rogge a Belgian Count.
