UNIT 1

COUNTABLE AND UNCOUNTABLE NOUNS
Countable Nouns
Countable nouns are easy to recognize. They are things that we can count. For example: "pen". We can count pens. 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 nouns can 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.

When a countable noun is singular, we must use a word like a/the/my/this with it:
• •

I want an orange. (not I want orange.) Where is my bottle? (not Where is bottle?)

When a countable noun is plural, we can use it alone:
• •

I like oranges. Bottles can break.

We can use some for moderate quantities, and any for zero quantities or questions with countable nouns:

I've got some dollars.
4

information. NOTE: "People" is countable. But we can say a something of: • • • a piece of news a bottle of water a grain of rice We can use some for moderate quantities and any for zero quantities and questions with uncountable nouns: 5 . power money. Here are some more uncountable nouns: • • • • • • music. love. We cannot "count" them. We do not usually use the indefinite article a / an with uncountable nouns. gas. butter. we cannot count "milk". Uncountable Nouns Uncountable nouns are substances. happi happiness advice. We can count people: • • There is one person here. For example: • • This news is very important. We can count "bottles of milk" or "litres of milk".• Have you got any pens? We can use a few for small quantities and many for big quantities with countable nouns: • • I've got a few dollars. We use a singular verb. For example. "People" is the plural of "person". luggage rice. water electricity. I haven't got many pens. concepts that we cannot divide into separate uns elements. but we cannot count "milk" itself. art. Your luggage looks heavy. There are three people here. news furniture. We cannot say "an information" or "a music". currency We usually treat uncountable nouns as singular. sugar.

it's a good idea to learn whether it's countable or uncountable. 6 . Here are some more examples of countable and uncountable nouns: Countable dollar song suitcase table battery bottle report tip journey job view Uncountable money music luggage furniture electricity wine information advice travel work scenery NOTE: When you learn a new word. Have you got any rice? We can use a little for small quantities and much for big quantities with uncountable nouns: • • I've got a little money.• • I've got some money. I´ve got much rice. Uncountable nouns are also called "mass nouns".

we can say (in a restaurant. the same noun can be countable and uncountable. paper room Is there room for me to sit here? time Have you got time for a coffee? work I have no money. I need work! NOTE: Drinks (coffee. Have you got some paper? There are two lights in our bedroom. orange juice) are usually uncountable. 7 . I want to draw a picture. noise Have you got a paper to read? (= newspaper) Our house has seven rooms. There's too much light! It's difficult to work when there is too much noise. for example): • Two teas and one coffee please. Close the curtain. But if we are thinking of a cup or a glass. often with a change of meaning. We had a great time at the party.Nouns that can be Countable and Uncountable Sometimes. light Shhhhh! I thought I heard a noise. Macbeth is one of Shakespeare's greatest works. Countable There are two hairs in my coffee! hair Uncountable I don't have much hair. water.
