What Is an Abstract Noun? (Video)

An abstract noun is a word that refers to something intangible, such as an emotion (e.g., anger, hate), a feeling (e.g., anxiety, fear), a quality (e.g., courage, patience), or an idea. An abstract noun does not represent a physical object. It is the opposite of a concrete noun.
