Countable and Uncountable Nouns – Definition

 

Countable nouns are those that refer to something that can be counted but a smaller number of nouns do not refer to things that can be counted: these are known as uncountable nouns. Countable nouns can be singular (e.g car, baby, house) or plural (e.g cars, babies, houses) but uncountable noun do not have regularly a plural form for example water, oil, sugar, honesty we cannot say waters, oils and sugars. We can use a determiner “a” or “an” with a singular countable noun, for example, a car or a baby.
