Is it grammatically correct to construct a sentence with the word 'mention' as given below ? Secondly here does the word 'mention' use as a verb?

There is a specific mention regarding the fundamental rights in chapter 2 of the constitution.

  • Probably better like this "There is a specific mention of the fundamental rights ..." – Araucaria - Not here any more. Jul 24 '17 at 14:50
  • When you consulted your English language dictionary, what did it tell you about the noun mention and the verb mention? What did you not understand about the example sentences? – P. E. Dant Reinstate Monica Jul 24 '17 at 22:55
  • Depends what you want to say. Can you include what you want the meaning to be? – Katrina Brock Jul 25 '17 at 2:01

The sentence is perfectly fine. As you can see from this Cambridge Dictionaries Online entry, "mention" can be used as a noun (as well as a verb):

mention noun

  1. a short remark or written statement

  2. an occasion when something or someone is mentioned

  3. an occasion when a person is publicly praised for having done something, such as their job, extremely well
