Countable and Uncountable Nouns

 

 


 

Countable nouns are the nouns we can count, like chairs, dogs, pencils. These nouns can be singular – a chair, or plural – chairs.

With these nouns we can use the indefinite and the definite article – a girl, the boy, etc. But we can also use different quantifiers like some, any, many, how many, a lot of, or a few.

 

 

Uncountable nouns refer to the thing we can’t count like sugar, money or coffee. They are also always in singular – ‘Chocolate makes everyone happy.’ They can be used with the definite article, some, any, much, too much, how much, a lot of, a little.
