type of noun?
word 'voice' and word 'grammar' are which type of noun (among common and abstract)?
Abstract nouns can be common. An example is idea. Do you mean to ask if these words are abstract or concrete? An abstract noun is something that can't be identified with the five senses. You can't see, hear, smell, taste, or touch it. A concrete noun is the opposite. Both voice and grammar are very common nouns. Do you think they are abstract or concrete?

There are two (among others) divisions of nouns in binary oppositions: concrete vs. abstract and common vs. proper. You don't normally compare common to abstract; it's concrete vs. abstract. For example, "idea" is an abstract noun, and "table" is a concrete noun. "City" is common while "New York City" is proper. Back to your question: if "voice" is used as somebody's physical voice, then it is concrete; "grammar" (being at the level of ideas) is abstract.
