What is an Uncountable Noun?

Countable nouns are common nouns that can take a plural, can combine with numerals or counting quantifiers, and can take an indefinite article such as a or an. Examples of count nouns are book, orange, cat, animal, man

  • The outside of an orange is bitter, but the inside is sweet.
  • cat was basking on the window sill.

Uncountable Nouns are substances, concepts, materials, information… that we cannot divide into separate elements. They can’t be counted.
For example, we cannot count “water“. We can count “a glass of water” or “a bottle of water” or “1 litre of water“, but we cannot count “water” itself.

  • I immerse my clothes in the water.
  • Could I have a glass of water, please?
