50 Abstract Nouns from Adjectives

50 Abstract Nouns from Adjectives! Intangible things that do not exist as physical objects are referred to as abstract nouns. The word cat, for example. A cat may be seen and touched. We can see that love is an abstract noun because it refers to an intangible notion rather than a physical object that we can experience with our senses. Similarly, luck is an abstract noun.

By adding the suffix -ness to adjectives, abstract nouns can be formed: happy/happiness, sad/sadness, kind/kindness, cheerful/cheerfulness. A vast number of adjectives, on the other hand, have separate nouns that do not require the use of the suffix -ness or any other suffix.
