There is only one lizard in the sentence, so the word lizard is a singluar noun. Also, there is only one rock in the sentence, so the word rock is a singluar noun too. A plural noun names more than one person, place, or thing. example: Two rabbits ran through the trees. There is more than one rabbit, so the word rabbit is a plural noun. Also, there is more than one tree, so the word trees is a plural noun too. Directions: Underline the noun in each sentence below.
