Countable and uncountable nouns and their differentiation

Исмхои шумурдашаванда ва шумурданашаванда ва фаркияти онхо.

In English grammar, countable nouns are individual people, animals, places, things, or ideas which can be counted.

Uncountable nouns are not individual objects, so they cannot be counted.

Notice that singular verbs are used with singular countable nouns, while plural verbs are used with plural countable nouns.


1. Your book is on the kitchen table. Singular noun

2. How many candles are on that birthday cake? Plural noun

Uncountable noun

Anything that cannot be counted is an uncountable noun. Uncountable nouns are not individual objects, they are always singular and one must always use singular verbs in conjunction with uncountable nouns. Notice that singular verbs are always used with uncountable nouns.

1. There is no more water in the pond.

2. I need to find information about Tajikistan.

Countable nouns can be counted: [a/one book, two books, a lot of books]

But uncountable nouns cannot be: (a/one news, two freedoms).

Countable nouns: a teacher, a child, a flower.

Uncountable nouns: love, death, water, milk.
