NOUN: noun

Definition

Nouns are a part of speech typically denoting a person, place, thing, animal or idea.

The NOUN tag is intended for common nouns only. See PROPN for proper nouns and PRON for pronouns.

Russian nouns have the lexical feature ru-feat/Gender. Furthermore, the nouns inflect for ru-feat/Number and ru-feat/Case.

A verbal noun can be derived productively from almost every verb (e.g. есть  “to eat” → поедание  “eating”). While in other languages a corresponding form may be called gerund and tagged VERB, in Russian it is tagged NOUN. It has always the neuter gender and the full number-case inflectional paradigm.
