Question:

You can tell that the word idealism is an abstract noun because of?



Answer:
"Idealism" is abstract because it is not concrete - other words that are similar (they are also abstract) are love, freedom, trust, etc. They do not define tangible, visible objects (like the words "cat," "church," or "shirt" - these words are "concrete" because there is a specific, tangible, visible object that you think of when these words are spoken) but rather these abstract nouns represent a feeling, belief, value, or idea. These abstract words represent things that cannot be perfectly expressed nor do they bring to mind a particular image or object, because they are not real "objects" but are often internal ideas or emotions.
