Concrete Noun Examples in Sentences and Expressions





Concrete Nouns

We have five sensory organs, these are eyes, skin, ears, tongue, and nose, and everything we can perceive with one of them is called concrete nouns. Objects that we can hold by hand, see with our eyes, and can both smell and taste are examples of concrete names and they also can be used as an adjective.
