What Can You Use the Random Noun Generator For?

There may be a time when you want to generate a list of random nouns instead of a list of all words. Maybe you’re looking for a noun that you can use in a game of Pictionary or simply want to generate a list of nouns. Our tool does just that.

There are an estimated 1.5 million nouns in the English language depending on which dictionary you reference. That’s a lot of nouns!

Types of Nouns

Before we get into how to use our tool, let’s evaluate the different types of nouns:

Common nouns are the most common type of noun and apply to almost any type of noun. They refer to general entities.

Proper nouns on the other hand are named places, things, or people.

Pronouns are types of nouns that can be used instead of nouns. Examples include he, she, it, they.

Collective nouns are words that refer to a collection of things and include words like “group”, “band”, and “squad”.

Abstract nouns are words that denote an idea, quality, or state, rather than a specific object. Examples include love, freedom, and luxury.

Countable vs. Uncountable Nouns: Countable nouns are discrete objects like a dog or cat, an umbrella, or a tree. Uncountable nouns can’t be counted such as weather, feelings, etc.

Concrete nouns refer to real things that can be seen, smelled, felt, or tasted. Examples include flowers, animals, computers, boats, etc.
