Is the word you a noun?

User Avatar
No, the word 'you' is a pronoun, specifically a personal pronoun, a word that takes the place of a noun for a specific person. The pronoun 'you' is the second person (the one spoken to), both singular and plural and can be used as a subject or an object. The personal pronouns are I, you, we, he, she, it, me, us, him, her, they, them. Example uses of the pronoun 'you': You are a good friend. I will miss you when you go away to college. (The pronoun 'you' is taking the place of the name of the person that I'm speaking to.) Mom, you have a phone call. (singular, subject of the verb 'have') Excuse me miss, does this glove belong to you? (singular, object of the preposition 'to') Students, you will have two hours for the test. (plural, subject of the verb 'will') Jack and Jill, I can take you to the mall. (plural, direct object of the verb 'can take')

What is the feminine of bachelor?

User Avatar
In English there are no masculine or feminine forms. English uses gender specific nouns for a male or a female. The gender specific noun for a male is a bachelor. The noun 'spinster' is a gender specific noun for a female who is past a child bearing age but has never married. The noun 'bachelor' is the noun used for an unmarried, adult male of any age. However, at the time the word 'spinster' was commonly used, no corresponding noun for a male was used because an unmarried man of any age is not past an age for (the expectation of) siring children. Old timers will speak of a 'bachelor lady.' The word bachelorette is a more recent addition to popular culture, because the word spinster has such negative connotations.

Why is Month called a month?

User Avatar
The word 'month' is a noun, a word for any of the twelve divisions of a calendar year; a word for a thing. The noun 'month' is a common noun because it is a general word for any month of the year. A common noun is capitalized only when it is the first word in a sentence. First invented and used in Mesopotamia, it is a natural period related to the motion of the moon. Month and moon have the same common origins.
