Spanish grammar has a concept called grammatical category that means the set of all the words of that language divided into different classes such as nouns, articles, conjunctions and verbs, among others. In this case we focus on the noun or name as that type of word in which its meaning defines absolute reality, that is, it alludes to all things whether they are elements, individuals, emotions, etc.
In Latin languages such as Spanish, this type of word changes depending on the gender and the number , the first admits differentiating the feminine from the masculine noun and the second distinguishes the plural from the singular.
