Apposition of abstract nouns and concrete nouns [closed]

For example, ‘circle’ is a concrete noun and ‘circularness’ is an abstract noun. Though can a circle be circularness and circularness be a circle?

‘Circularness is a circle.’

Answer

I have found the word “circularness” in several online dictionaries other than Wiktionary, though it definitely isn’t something I would use. Circularity (as suggested by Kate Bunting) sounds better, but I think roundness is more common.

When you say:

A circle is circularness.

this is wrong. You need an adjective to describe the circle, not a noun. You should change this to

A circle is circular.

A circle is round.
