But the modern english grammar prescribed by the NCERT has made these "abstract noun" & "collective noun" obsolate. Now there are three kinds of nouns i.e. "Countable" "Uncountable" and "mass" noun instead of 5 kinds of noun those were known earlieri.e. 1-Common noun 2-Proper noun 3-collective noun 4-material noun 5-abstract noun...............

An abstract noun is the name we give to an emotion or idea; something which is experienced as an idea and not as something we sense through touch, sight, hearing etc.

For example: doubt, size, history

The name of something or someone that we can experience through our senses, sight, hearing, touch etc.

For example: book, table, dog, teacher
