Caller: "Hello, is this Tech Support?"

Tech Repairer: "Yes, it is. How may I help you?"

Caller: "The cup holder on my PC is broken and I am within my warranty period. How do I go about getting that fixed?"

Tech Repairer: "I'm sorry, but did you say a cup holder?"

Caller: "Yes, it's attached to the front of my computer."

Tech Repairer: "Please excuse me if I seem a bit stumped, it's because I am. Did you receive this as part of a promotion, at a trade show? How did you get this cup holder? Does it have any trademark on it?"

Caller: "It came with my computer; I don't know anything about a promotion. It just has '4X' on it."

At this point the Tech Repairer had to mute the caller, because he couldn't stand it. He was laughing too hard. The caller had been using the load drawer of the CD-ROM drive as a cup holder, and snapped it off the drive.


Grammar nouns


Definition. Nouns are the words we use for the names of things. They can be the names of people, places, objects, or even feelings. For example:

objects hat, gate, spoon, lamp, notebook
feelings joy, love, sadness, fear, anger
natural things electricity, thunder, gravity, speed
groups herd, pack, catalogue, crowd


There are three different types of noun:


Common nouns. This is the term for objects such as 'shoe', 'book', 'coat', 'man', and 'woman'.

Proper nouns. This is the term for names of people, places, days of the week, and months of the year. Proper nouns are written with a capital letter:


Abai Kunanbaev April
Saturday National Park

Abstract nouns. This is the term for feelings - such as 'anger', ‘love’, 'joy', 'fear', and 'sadness'.

If there is more than one thing being discussed, we use the plural.

Singular - girl

Plural - girls


Most plurals of nouns are formed by adding the letter 's'.

books shoes coats dogs cats

But there are a lot of words which have what are called irregular plurals:


Singular Plural
Man Men
Woman Women
Child Children
Ox Oxen
Ostrich Ostriches
