countable or uncountable nouns?


Countable:
● Things that can be counted.
● They have both singular and plural forms.

Uncountable:
● Things that are abstract.
● Things that are made of particles that are too numerous to count.


Tricky nouns to practice:

  • Money
  • Coins
  • Bread
  • Loaves of bread
  • Water
  • Glasses of water
  • Hair
  • Information

The only positive sentence that we’d use when we use much is saying that we have too much of something. For example we dont say I have much information, I have much home, or I have much work to do… no, this is incorrect.

The way we say it, is when we have too much, for example: I have too much information, I have to much work to do.

  • But in the negative form is posible only use much. I don’t have much work to do.

"Countable or uncountable?"
how exactly these concepts work in the mind of a native English speaker.
When we talk about something that is “countable”, we generally mean something that can be counted. A fact that can help you a lot to identify it is: does this noun have a singular and plural form?
Countless things are often abstract. For example, feelings are abstract and unquantifiable in English - anything that is made up of particles that are too small or too numerous to count. What does that mean? Do not panic, we will see it in the next slides.
“Love ‘is’ in the air”
“These apples ‘are’ cheaper than usual.”
“Platzi has ‘many’ courses”.
“there is not” much “(much) information on the subject.”

The knowledge is uncountable it's so similar to the information.
The knowledge is uncountable that is like the information.

Personally, I think that Knowledge is similar to information because both are uncountable, there is no word “knowledge”

AND THE SUMMARY

Many or Much?

The difference is when we talking about something that can be countable or uncountable.

One little trick to know what’s is countable or uncountable is to think if the word has a singular form like a book, would become books, because is a countable noun.

I understand very week the difference between countable and uncountable nouns but something that happens to me is even knowing the differences I make mistakes because of lack of practice, I’m sure several people know which noun is which, but in my case, I’m trying to practice a lot, it is useless to know the theory if I made many mistakes in the practice so if you’re like me practice…practice a lot it has been a great help to me.

The knowledge is unlimited, therefore it’s uncountable.
