# Is "sunshine" an concrete noun or abstract noun?

May 24, 2018

"Sunshine" is a concrete noun.

#### Explanation:

First of all, what are concrete and abstract nouns?

• Concrete nouns are nouns that are able to be identified by at least one of the five senses: sight, touch, hearing, smell, and taste.
$\rightarrow$book (touch and sight)
$\rightarrow$noise (heard)
$\rightarrow$food (sight, touch, taste, and smell)

-Abstract nouns are nouns that are not able to be identified through the five senses.
$\rightarrow$education
$\rightarrow$bravery
$\rightarrow$time

Sunshine is a tricky noun, since it's hard to tell if it is able to be identified through the senses or not. But it is! It can be seen and felt, so it is a concrete noun.
