It is a sentence that is not clearly formulated and does not mean anything. :-)

Perhaps what the person means is this:

- Nouns are part of noun groups
- Noun groups can be the subject of the sentence. Ex: [A very tall and pretty woman] is walking on the beach.

(The noun group is surrounded with angle brackets)
