Overview: This post gives out a meaningful conversation about the difference between Nouns and Pronouns. As they talk about the most common words used in the English language, it might seem to be confusing to know which word performs the function of which figure of speech. Whether it is a noun or a pronoun? Both the words and figures of speech are important aspects of Grammar and are used in everyday conversations too.
Let us now head on to the meaningful conversation and know the difference between Nouns and Pronouns:
Person 1: Hey, now that we have completed our full semester for this year, I still haven’t understood the difference between what is a Noun and what is a Pronoun. I understand it in the class bit later I tend to forget it which confuses me.
Person 2: Don’t worry! I’ll help you out with this. Initially, I was also confused about the same thing. But later, I tried to focus more on it.
Person 1: Yes, please do tell me the difference between Nouns and Pronouns; it will be a great help.
Person 2: The first thing to remember is that Nouns and Pronouns are words that act as the subject and object of the sentence. Now, the major difference between a Noun and a Pronoun is that a Noun will always name a person, place, idea, or thing; whereas a Pronoun will replace a noun and a Noun is a naming word.
Person 1: Okay, so do Nouns have types also?
Person 2: Yes, there are four types of Nouns and those are common nouns, proper nouns, concrete nouns, abstract nouns, collective nouns, countable and, uncountable nouns.
Person 1: Oh, okay. I’m understanding this! You are really making it easy to understand!
Person 2: Ohh, wait! It’s not over yet! Pronouns also have types and those are Demonstrative pronouns, possessive pronouns, relative pronouns and, indefinite pronouns.
Person 1: Thank you so much for making it so easy for me to understand. I’ll go home and read about all of it in detail too!
Person 2: Yes, of course. If you want then I can send you some study material related to this topic.
Person 1: yes, I’ll let you know!
