| #2 (permalink) Fri Aug 17, 2007 11:33 am difference between noun and subject
A noun is a word class, a part of speech (noun, verb, adjective, adverb, preposition, conjunction, interjection).
A subject is a word function in a sentence. (The boy (Subject) is bald.)
Subjects are usually if not always nouns (Chicago is my kind of town), noun phrases (The little fat boy in the corner is still hungry) or noun clauses (Whoever ate my sandwich is in big trouble!)
