Nouns are the names we give to things.  They refer to a person, place, thing, event, substance, quality, quantity, or idea.


It's impossible to determine exactly how many nouns there are in the English language. It is an evolving group with new words constantly being added and older words becoming obsolete.

However, the second edition of the 20 volume Oxford English Dictionary does contain 90 488 nouns. This gives us our best idea of how many nouns there are in the English language. That is a huge number especially when we consider that the Oxford publication does not include highly technical or regionally specific words.


The nouns in the following sentences are in bold.  

The boy sat on the chair.

The fish swam in the water.

Leaves are the lateral outgrowth of stems.

All of the rooms and even the corridors were full of people waiting to see the Emperor.

Do you want to make your own website?

I was very lucky. When I was looking for someone to show me how to make a website I found SBI.

I watched lots of videos made by people that were using SBI and then I decided to take the plunge and I haven't looked back.

I learnt how to make a quality website based around popular keyword searches which ensured that my pages would rank high in the search engines. Throughout the process, SBI emphasized the importance of producing something of real value. 

Over the course of three years, a few hours a week,  I followed their step by step guide and to my delight and amazement,  I now have a website that attracts over 30 000 visitors a month and creates a passive income.  

If you are thinking of building your own website  but are worried about getting the wrong advice then do what I did. Join SBI.

SBI is the real deal; a genuine company that teaches and supports first time web builders so that you get the best results from your hard work.
