Spanish Nouns

We use Nouns to identify people, animals, things, places, feelings or ideas. There are many different types of Nouns in Spanish, but the main ones are Common nouns and Proper nouns.

Proper noun refers to a unique entity, such as people, places, countries, and so on. These nouns in Spanish, as well as in English, are always written with capitals. On the other hand, Common nouns represent people, animals or things but they are not used to name a specific entity, they usually refer to entities that belong to the same group.
