Feedback and Review:

A noun is the name of a person, place, thing, or idea.  Whatever exists, we assume can be named, and that name is a noun.  A proper noun, which names a specific person, place, or thing (Carlos, Queen Marguerite, Middle East, Jerusalem, Malaysia, Presbyterianism, God, Spanish, Buddhism, the Republican Party), is always capitalized.  A proper noun used as an addressed person's name is called a noun of address. Common nouns name everything else, things that usually are not capitalized.  For further practice, click here
