what's the difference between thinking and thought?
p.s they're nouns
+0
The word thought refers to a single thought and in this way it's similar to the noun idea. Thinking refers to the process of thinking. You can think of thoughts as products of thinking.

BTW, thinking is not always a noun. Sometimes it's a present participle

Thinking about how to spend the rest of the day, he walked out of the hotel.
