Learn the difference between countable and uncountable nouns with this English grammar lesson. Countable nouns are separate objects that we can count. They have a singular and a plural form and we can use the indefinite article with them ("a" or "an") Uncountable nouns are things like liquids, materials or a mass of substance with no boundaries. They only have a singular form and we cannot use "a" or "an" before them. We can use the word "some", for example "There is some rice." Some nouns can be both countable and uncountable depending on the context or situation. It is very important to learn if a noun is countable or not because the English grammar rules for both types of nouns are different. There are subtitles (closed captions) during the video and the accent is a British English accent.

In this lesson we look at many nouns which are both countable and uncountable. Uncountable nouns (used in a general sense) have no article, whereas countable nouns MUST have an article. Here are some examples of words being used as countable and uncountable nouns. War is a racket. War is hell. All is fair in love and war There was a war in northern Europe. The argument was a war of words. The party was a disaster. 50 people perished in the disaster Disaster struck. This would spell disaster for the company. I did it by accident! It was an accident! I saw a terrible accident on the way to work. You can find more lessons on my website. https://www.skype-lessons.com/ Please use a good learners dictionary to find out if the word can be both countable and uncountable.

Do you think English grammar is confusing? Ever wonder why can we say "a dollar" but we can't say "a money"? Why can we say "houses", but not "furnitures"? In this class, you will learn the grammar rules about countable and uncountable nouns in English, including when to use "a" or "an", when to add an "s" at the end of a noun to make it plural, and when you should NOT add an "s". You will also learn about the difference between "much" and "many".

My name is Emma, and in today's video I'm going to teach you about countable and uncountable nouns. We can also call these "count nouns" and "non-count nouns". So, let's begin by first talking about: What is a noun? So, a noun is a word that is a person... It can be a person, so: "Emma", that's a noun; "teacher", that's a noun. It can be a place. "Russia" is a noun. "School" is a noun. It can be an animal; a dog. "Dog" is a noun. The word "cat" is a noun. It can also be a thing. This marker... The word "marker" is a noun. Okay? And it can also be a feeling. "Happiness" is a noun. So, a noun is a person, a place, a thing, an object, an animal. There are many things that are nouns. What a noun is not is it's not an action, like a verb; it's not a description, like an adjective; and it's not a preposition, like the word "on" or "off". Okay? A noun is, like I've said before, one of these things. So, in English... Well, actually, first let's do something. Let's underline the nouns just to make sure we have this concept. So, my first sentence is: "Canada is a large country." So let's underline the nouns, here. Well, "Canada" is a place, so we know "Canada" is a noun; "is" is a verb; "large" - this is a description; "country". "Country" is a place; this is also a noun. "My teacher is funny". "Teacher" is a person, so this is a noun; "funny" is a description, it's an adjective, it's not a noun. "The dog", so we have "dog" is an animal; "cats", "cats" are nouns; and we have the word, here, "friends". The word "friend" is also a noun. Okay? So, these are all nouns. So, in English, we have two types of nouns; we have countable nouns and we have uncountable nouns. It's important to know if a noun is countable or uncountable, because this is going to tell us if we use words, like: "a" in front of the word, and it will also tell us which words we cannot use with these words. So... And whether or not we need to add an "s" to the end of the noun if there's more than one. So, in this video, we are going to talk about countable nouns with many examples and uncountable nouns. So, let's look at countable nouns first. Okay, so we're going to start with countable nouns first. So, the first thing you need to know with a countable noun is when we have a countable noun, we need to put an "a" or an "an" in front of it. So, for example: "I have a dog. I have a computer. I have a lamp. I have a chair." So, notice I'm putting "a" in front of all of these. If the noun starts with a vowel sound, so for example: "a" is a vowel, "e", "i", "o", "u" - these are all vowels. And if it starts with a vowel sound, then we use "an". "I have an apple. I have an egg. I have an ant." Okay? So, we use this if the first... The first sound of the word is a vowel. So, the second thing you need to know is that with countable nouns a lot of the time we can count them. Okay? So we can often... A countable noun is something you can count, or... Usually it's something, or an animal, or, you know, a place - it's something you can count. So, for example: "I have a book." This is one book. "I have two books.", "I have three books." So, this... You can count books and it's a countable noun. "I have two chairs. I have five dresses." These are all countable nouns. When we have more than one countable noun, so for example, here we have one, here we have two. If we have more than one-so two, three, four, five, six-we need to add an "s". This shows us that there is more than one. And also notice that we don't need this in front of the noun anymore. So, we cannot say: "a books", because the "s" means there's more than one, so this would not match. Okay. What else do we need? So, we need an "s" or an "es" if we have more than one of this type of object or noun. Here's another example: "I have one sister.", "I have three sisters." So, notice here, you can count the number of sisters I have, and so I've added an "s". Now, we have some exceptions. For example, the word "moose". You can count the number of moose, but we never add an "s". It's... It's a strange exception. In English, you'll notice we have a lot of exceptions. We break rules a lot of times in English and that's okay. It's the same with "fish".

When we talk about quantities, we need to know that some nouns are countable and others are uncountable. This is an important distinction, because countable nouns have plural (we can add the letter –s at the end), but uncountable nouns don’t. If you follow this lesson, you’ll never mix them up again!

Nouns in the English language can be divided up into two types: countable (sometimes called just count) and uncountable (sometimes just called uncount nouns.) Countable Nouns Countable nouns are nouns that can be singular or plural and, as the name suggests, can be counted. When used in their singular form, we place articles, possessive adjectives, demonstrative adjectives, etc., before the noun. Essentially, it cannot stand alone. My dogs, The cars, Those birds, etc. On the other hand, countable nouns in the plural form do not always require an article or pronoun. We love children, Guitars are expensive, etc. We use the word 'some' to refer to plural countable nouns in positive sentences and the word 'any' in negative sentences and questions. We have some copies in the back. Do you have any pencils? Let’s look at these different rules using the topic cars: I miss my car. (Use of a demonstrative adjective) I like cars. (No article or pronoun) We have some vintage cars from the 1950’s. (Use of the word some) I am not selling any cars. (Use of the word any) And now with horses: That horse is beautiful. Horses are sometimes wild creatures. Some horses are sold for meat on the black market. Don’t you own any horses? Uncountable nouns Uncountable nouns are nouns that, predictably, cannot be counted. Singular verb forms are usually used with uncountable nouns. The coffee is cold. The indefinite articles a and an cannot be used with uncountable nouns. INCORRECT: I have gained a weight. CORRECT: I have gained weight. As with countable nouns, we use the word some to refer to uncountable nouns in positive sentences and the word any in negative sentences and questions. I have some pasta here for everyone to share. Is there any mud in the driveway? Let’s look at these different rules using the topic sand: There is some sand on the floor. I don’t have any sand in my pockets. And now with bread: There is some bread left over from supper. Is there any bread in the pantry?

In this English lesson, you will learn how to use the indefinite article (a, an) Dans ce cours, vous allez apprendre l'article indéfini en anglais. “a”, “an” and “the” are articles. They are types of determiners and they modify nouns. “a” and “an” are indefinite articles. This means "not specific" so they refer to non-specific instances of a noun. The most common use is when it is the first time we refer to an instance of a noun. In this video lesson, I explain the grammar rules and all of the other situations of when to use indefinite articles. There are some grammar exercises at the end of the lesson.

Transcript: Hello and welcome. In this lesson, I will teach you the seven rules that you need to know for using articles in English correctly. Articles are the words ‘a’, ‘an’, and ‘the’. There is a final quiz at the end of the lesson for you to test your understanding. OK, the first rule is about where to use ‘a’ and where to use ‘an’. So rule number one is use ‘a’ before a consonant sound, and ‘an’ before a vowel sound. So in all of these words – you see that they start with a consonant sound. Cat starts with /k/, dog starts with /d/, boy with /b/, girl with /g/, house with /h/ and tree with /t/. So we say ‘a cat’, ‘a dog’, ‘a boy’, ‘a girl’, ‘a house’, ‘a tree’ etc. Notice that in natural speech, we don’t say ‘a’, we say ‘uh’ – like ‘a cat’. In this next set of words, you see that, they all start with a vowel sound – apple starts with /ae/, engineer starts with /e/, ice-cream with /ai/, old with /o/, umbrella with /uh/. So we say ‘an apple’, ‘an engineer’, ‘an ice-cream cone’, ‘an old womman’, ‘an umbrella’ and so on. In speech, we don’t say ‘an’, we say /ən/. Let’s do a small exercise. You see ten items on the screen. For each one, I want you to say if you would use ‘a’ or ‘an’ before it. Stop the video, think about it, then play the video again and check. OK here are the answers. Did you get them all right? I want to focus on items number seven to ten because these are a little tricky. Number seven is ‘a university’ because even though ‘university’ starts with the letter ‘u’ the first sound of the word is not a vowel sound. We don’t say /ooniversity/. We say /yoo-nə- vər-si-ty/ so that first sound is a /y/ sound, which a consonant sound, so we say ‘a university.’ Number eight is similar. The word ‘European’ starts with a /y/ sound, so ‘a European tour.’ In number nine, the spelling has an ‘h’ at the start but that ‘h’ is silent. We don’t say /hau-ər/, we say /au-ər/. The first sound is an /au/ sound which is a vowel sound, so this is ‘an hour’. In the same way, in number ten, we say MA. ‘M’ starts with an /e/ sound which is again a vowel sound, so ‘an MA in English’. OK let’s move on to rule number two: Use ‘a’ and ‘an’ ONLY with singular, countable nouns. We say that a noun is countable if we can count it – one, two, three, four etc. All of these words on the screen are countable. We can say one elephant, three cars, ten teachers, five hundred onions and so on. Now if you talk about one person or thing, like one elephant or one car, then that’s called a singular noun and if you say ten teachers or five hundred onions, those are called plural nouns. Uncountable nouns cannot be counted in this way. Nouns like water, sugar, milk, love, anger, knowledge are some examples. If you think about it, you cannot say “I drank four waters” or “I want eight milks”. To a person, you can say “I love you” but you can’t say “I have five loves for you” – that doesn’t make any sense. So these are all uncountable. Alright, so the rule is - you can only use ‘a’ and ‘an’ if you’re talking about one person or one thing. Let’s do another quick exercise. Here are ten items again. This time, you see ‘a’ or ‘an’ before the nouns, but some of these are wrong. They should NOT have ‘a’ or ‘an’ before them. Stop the video, identify the mistakes, then play the video again and check. OK, here are the answers. Number three is wrong because ‘shirts’ is a plural and you cannot use ‘a’ or ‘an’ before a plural noun. Number five is wrong because ‘happiness’ is uncountable, so again, ‘a’ or ‘an’ cannot be used there. The same goes for number six – water is uncountable. Number nine is wrong because ‘doctors’ is a plural – you can say ‘a doctor’ but not ‘a doctors’. And finally, in number ten, advice is an uncountable noun – so you cannot ask for ‘an advice’. Now a quick note here: the article ‘the’ can be used with all kinds of nouns – singular or plural countable nouns, and uncountable nouns. OK, so let’s now talk about how to choose between ‘a’ or ‘an’ and ‘the’. Here’s rule number three: Use ‘a’ or ‘an’ to talk about a person or thing unknown to your listener. And use ‘the’ to talk about a person or thing known to your listener. For example, “My sister has two computers: a PC and a laptop. The PC is quite old but the laptop is brand new.” I say ‘a PC’ and ‘a laptop’ because that’s the first time I’m mentioning the two computers. That is, until this point, they are unknown to you, the listener.

Do you know the difference between countable and uncountable nouns and how to use them? Join me as I explain everything you need to know about countable and uncountable nouns. See you in class! ***** WHAT ARE THEY? Some nouns in English are classes as “countable”, and others as “uncountable (or mass nouns)”. It basically means that we consider some nouns unable to be separated and counted, like water, rice, and love, music. As a general rule substances, weather, collections of things, and abstract concepts tend to be uncountable. These nouns are always singular: there is no plural form, although there are some words that only exist in the plural that are uncountable, for example: scissors and jeans. The problem is that, in most other languages, many of them are countable. You can find out if a verb is countable or uncountable by looking in a dictionary. Any good dictionary indicates whether the noun is C OR U. WHICH ARTICLES TO USE Countable nouns can be singular, or plural. For example: a dog/dogs a child/children the evening/the evenings a/an refer to singular nouns, so uncountable nouns cannot be used with a/an but you can use some/any with both. You must use many/few with countable, and much and little with uncountable noun, but sometimes that’s difficult to remember so sometimes it’s easier to use “a lot of”, which you can use with both! MANY NOUNS ARE BOTH When you use uncountable nouns to be specific, then you can use them with a/an as countable nouns. For example: Her hair is blonde/there is a hair in my soup I love beer/I want a beer He has experience in computing/The holiday was a great experience So this means that using the countable or uncountable version of the nouns changes the meaning. For example: “a glass” is a recipient for liquids: “glass” is a clear substance for making windows. HOW TO TURN UNCOUNTABLE INTO COUNTABLE NOUNS You can make most uncountable nouns countable by adding “a bit of” or “a piece of”, for example: A piece of information Two bits of advice Although the majority of nouns can be converted in this way, there are some other combinations that you will have to memorise. For example, how do we make luck, transport and rain countable?

Uncountable Nouns | Definition | Examples & List of Uncountable Nouns: Uncountable Nouns Those nouns which cannot be counted are called uncountable nouns. These nouns are substances, ideas etc. which we cannot divide into separate elements. In other words, those nouns which have no plural form are called uncountable nouns. For example, the words, milk, oil, music, art, love, rice, sugar, butter, water, kindness and money are all uncountable nouns, because they have no plural forms. They cannot be divided into separate element. We cannot say milks, oils, moneys, rices and sugars. Moreover, we cannot use indefinite articles with uncountable noun, rather we use modifiers like, a piece of, a glass of, a slice of, a drop of, and a bottle of, before uncountable nouns. For example, a piece of information, a glass of water, a slice of bread, a drop of oil and a bottle of water. We also use, some, any, a little and much, with uncountable nouns. For example, He has got some money. Do you have any information about him? She has got a little money. I haven’t got much rice. It should be kept in mind that uncountable nouns take a singular verb. For example, This is an interesting piece of information. Water is an important element of life. In these sentences, singular verbs have been used. Now, let’s see some examples of uncountable nouns. accommodation, progress, advice, furniture, luggage, research, money, baggage, bread, cheese, equipment, information, happiness, knowledge, literature, music, work, news, sadness, travel and water. uncountable nouns definition, define uncountable nouns, uncountable nouns list, uncountable nouns examples, countable and uncountable nouns examples, uncountable nouns definition, uncountable nouns singular or plural, uncountable nouns food, uncountable nouns worksheet

Well this is yet another division for the noun or noun division What does a countable noun mean? Generally it's a noun, it's the name of something when it can be separated so we'll use it for objects, for people, for ideas. They can be separated. Generally that means that there is a singular form and a plural form of these nouns, these countable nouns. So the singular will generally need a determiner before it So you'd have a person, the person, this person, my friend... So you would need a determiner before it and the plural, that would mean that you could count them: one person, two people, three people, five friends and so on... Various examples here: we have the example of a friend so this is a countable noun because we can find it in a plural form and we can separate them so we can also have one two three different friends as you can use lots of different determiners basically in front of it that's what makes it countable you can't say for example "a money"* "monies" * "two monies"* it doesn't exist so that would lead us to this second column of uncountable nouns so names of things, names of substances, concepts, materials, So they all considered mass nouns. You can't separate them. It's just one big block of something. So it could be "the weather": we can't say "a weather"* "weathers"* You would say "weather" and you could say "advice" His advice was good. But you can't say: "His advices were good"* That doesn't work, it doesn't exist. music, sound, and so on... All those are uncountable nouns. So they can't be divided - that's very important. Generally they're considered to be singular with no plural although you can't place "a" or "an" before "a weather"* "an advice"* You can't do that. You would make sure that the verb was in the singular form. So: "the weather is good" "his advice was good" "this music is pleasant" and so on. The ideas, the concepts are quite simple. It's generally when we start to use quantifiers (all these words here in purple) when we tend to use quantifiers mistakes do come up. So when do we use quantifiers? We use them when we want to focus on numbers, on quantities. These here only work with countable nouns. So you could say: "few people", "a few people", "many people", "several times" "both days", "each time", "either day", "fewer people"... You can use them with lots of different nouns So countable nouns could be for example: "coins". I had few coins in my hand. For several days we will stay at this hotel. We will stay there for several days. (So that's countable) Seasons and so... Lots of nouns are countable and fewer are actually uncountable. Uncountable nouns - we've seen a few here already. We can also say that "money" is uncountable. "time" as a concept is uncountable "sun", "rain": those things are uncountable And you could use uncountable nouns with these quantifiers here. So you can say: "a little rain", "not much sun" "a bit of money", "a great deal of time" and so on And then in the middle here, you have a series of quantifiers that can work either with countable or uncountable. So you could easily say: "some people" or "some advice" So it works with both. all, enough, enough, most, a lot of... That's about it! Thanks for watching!

Visit http://www.flo-joe.co.uk or http://www.ieltsspeaking.co.uk Welcome to this 10 minute video lesson on the subject of countable and uncountable nouns. As usual with these videos we look at the topic by examining the mistakes that are made by upper-intermediate to advanced English students so you’ll get the most from these lessons if your English is at or approaching this level. As we saw in our lesson on ‘articles’, the simple way to describe a countable noun is whether we can add an ’s’ to the end of the noun. ‘Book’, 'books’, ‘teacher’, 'teachers' - that kind of thing. Words like ‘music’ , ’traffic’, ‘information’ cannot have an ’s’ added to the end of them and are examples of uncountable nouns. And if students mistake an uncountable noun for a countable noun it can also lead to other mistakes being made in words that accompany the noun. For example, perhaps the wrong form of the verb is used or the wrong determiner like ‘many’ instead of ‘much’. Lower level students will often make mistakes like ‘the traffic are very bad in my city’, or 'there isn’t many informations’. But it’s not just lower level students who have these problems.
