Abstract nouns remain to be a subject of discussion among linguists. Words such as “laughter,” for example, cause separation among linguists; some linguists consider laughter to be an abstract noun, whereas others disagree as a laughter can be heard. Other words of discussion include “work” or “result.” The fact that the discussion persists on these words shows that the concept “abstract” does not have clearly defined borders.
