Countable and Uncountable Nouns

1-Countable Nouns

Countable nouns are easy to recognize. They are things that
we can count. For
example: "pen".
We can have one, two, three or more pens. Here are some more countable
nouns:

• dog, cat, animal, man, person

• bottle, box, litre

• coin, note, dollar

• cup, plate, fork

• table, chair, suitcase, bag

Countable nounscan be
singular or plural:

• My dog is playing.
• My dogs are hungry.

We can use the indefinite
article a/an with countable nouns:

• A dog is an animal.

We can use some and any
with countable nouns:

• I've got some dollars.
• Have you got any pens?

We can use a few/ few and
many with countable nouns:

• I've got a few dollars.
• I haven't got many pens.
************************************************** ***********

2-Uncountable Nouns

Uncountable nouns are substances, concepts etc that we cannot divide into separate
elements. We cannot "count" them.

For example, we cannot count "milk".

. Here are some more examples of uncountable nouns:

• music, art, love, happiness

• advice, information, news

• furniture, luggage

• rice, sugar, butter, water

• electricity, gas, power

• money, currency

We usually treat uncountable nouns as singular.
We use a singular verb. For example:

• This news is very important.
• This coffee tastes bad.

We do not use the indefinite article a/an with
uncountable nouns. We cannot say "an
information" or "a music".

But we can say :

• a piece of news
• a bottle of water
• a grain of rice

We can use some and any with uncountable nouns:


• I've got some money.
• Have you got any rice?

We can use a little and much with uncountable
nouns:

• I've got a little money.
• I haven't got much rice.
********************************************

Exercises:

• A/ Write "c" if the noun is countable, "uc" if the noun is uncountable.

Example: tomato:"c"


1. tree
2. sugar
3. rice
4. water
5. cup
6. friend
7. school
8. love
9. table
10. time
