NOUNS

The word “noun” comes from the same root as Name

and so we have Proper and Common names.

The rule of capitalizing Proper Names is cultural and there was a time when all nouns were capitalized. The root is seen in other words as “NYM” and “NOM.”

“IN PLACE OF NOUN”

 

A Substantial Number of Meta-linguistic terms contain this root. But the meaning can mean “sense” or “meaning” as well as “name” or ‘spelling.’

PRONOUNS substitute nouns and nouns phrases which are then referred to as theantecedent, which should always be easy to find in formal writing

                      e.g.  “My friend Tom is always home when he’s not working.”
