What you need to know about uncountable nouns:
Uncountable nouns are difficult to count! All of these nouns are uncountable:
– Liquids (water, milk, wine)
– Powders (flour, coffee, sugar)
– gases (air)
– electricity, money, music…
– abstract nouns (like happiness, motivation and luck)
Uncountable nouns have only one form – they cannot be plural.
You can’t use ‘a’ or ‘an’ with uncountable nouns because they are used with singular nouns (one) – and uncountable nouns can’t be counted!
You can’t use numbers with uncountable nouns!
You can use ‘some’ with uncountable nouns – because we use it to say there is an amount, but not a specific amount.
But you can also use uncountable nouns WITHOUT ‘some’: Can you get rice from the supermarket? When it’s not important to say how much!
Watch the video lesson to learn how you can quantify uncountable nouns.
