There are a nujmber of types of soups, too many to name actually. But there are some basic types, two in particular. There are thick soups and puree soups. The thick soups usually contain some form of thickening agent like cornstarch or even a noodle that is starchy. They can consist of milk or cream. Puree soups are more watery, like a tomatoe soup for instance. There are many, many variations of these two types though like a bisque which is basically thin but has some form of substance food in it like some tomatoe.
There are stews, chowders, soups made with beef, some with vegetables and broth which is a liquid of perhaps chicken or beef. There are fish soups, hot soups, cold soups, and even very spicy soups. Most cultures have versions of their own types of soups like the Chinese have theirs, wonton and other varieties and Mexicans have spicey types. Soups have been with us through the ages...through thick and through...thin.
