"Auction" concrete or abstract count noun?


New Member

I have a question with regard to the sub-classification of the word "auction" as a noun.

Auction seems to me to be a count noun but I am confused as to whether or not it is a concrete or abstract count noun. I think it may be an easy answer but English grammar always makes me second guess myself - just like Math!

Can anyone help me out?

Thank you in advance! :)

    Thank you for your reply.

    I am taking a course on Traditional Grammar and some of these distinctions and sub-classifications have me stumped.
