An abstract noun is a noun that describes something you cannot touch (not a thing, not a person), for example: love, anger, education, relationship... It's a noun, meaning it can take an article and an adjective.

An adjective qualifies a noun, for example: good, bad, blue, healthy, warm, cold... You can speak of a "warm relationship, a good education, ...", and also of "a warm blanket, a good person, ..."
happy can be said as adjective and abstract noun too, so what's the difference between the two?

Happy is only an adjective; it is not an abstract noun. The abstract noun is happiness.

good is adjective but why person is added to good
Hi,

If you say 'It is good', we need to know what you are talking about.

eg a good man

eg a good dinner

eg a good book

The noun tells us what you are describing.
