Nouns

A noun is a person, place, or thing.
A phrase is a group of words that do not make sense on their own.

A noun phrase includes a noun and other words linked to it. A noun phrase can begin with:

  1. definite article: the butterfly
  2. indefinite article: a butterfly
  3. demonstrative adjectives: that butterfly / this butterfly / those butterflies / these butterflies.

A noun phrase can be expanded with adjectives: a blue butterfly
