How to Identify Nouns
Nouns are easy to identify because of the words that precede them. Words such as a, an, or the always precede a noun. You use the word "a" before a noun that begins with a consonant.
For example, a ball, a hat, etc. You use the word "an" before a noun that begins with a vowel. For example, an apple, an egg, etc.
