The word 'anger' is a noun.

Nouns 02

This KS2 English quiz takes a second look at nouns. You know that nouns are names for people, places and things. They are very often the names of things you can't see, including feelings, ideas and qualities. For example: 'anger' is the name of a feeling, 'equality' is the name of an idea, and 'generosity' is the name of a quality.

This quiz is a little more tricky than our first quiz on nouns, so if you haven't yet played the first one, now is a good time to do so. If you don't get full marks the first time in this quiz, don't worry. Play the quiz again until you are confident you can spot nouns, whether they are proper or abstract.

See how well you know what a noun is by trying this challenging English quiz.
