LEARN SPANISH COUNTABLE ABSTRACT NOUNS

Abstract nouns name feelings, thoughts, etc. In other words, they name "entities" that cannot be perceived by our senses.

Example

Hay una mezcla de culturas. (There is a mixture of cultures)

In this example, the noun "culturas" cannot be perceived by our senses, that is why it is an abstract noun, it names something you cannot touch. However, in this example, the abstract noun "culturas" is in its plural form, so it is countable. We have said that an abstract noun can be a countable noun and this is true in some cases although the majority of abstract nouns are uncountable.
