Asked by Richard

It is possible for a noun to be both common and proper, or common and collective, or proper and collective?

A noun cannot be common and proper. A common noun would be house and a proper noun would be France. A noun can be common and collective eg staff and crew. But proper and collective definitely not. https://www.gingersoftware.com/content/grammar-rules/nouns/collective-nouns/ https://schoolworkhelper.net/types-of-nouns-common-proper-abstract-collective/ Also sent some links
