Italian Grammar: What is a noun?
The main function of nouns in any language is to denote an entity (person, object, etc.) or concept (situation, abstract idea, etc.). Nouns are generally used together with articles (the, a) and/or adjectives (describing physical or other characteristics), which provide information about the entity or concept. Together they form a group of words called the noun group; two examples are shown below:
-una (article) grande (adjective) casa (noun) a big house
-la (article) ragazza (noun) inglese (adjective) the English girl
