There are so many examples when we talk about a noun. A noun can be countable and uncountable. But how can we determine if that thing is countable or uncountable? To solve that confusion, try to read this short information about the two.
Countable nouns have a singular and plural form. They can use a singular verb or a plural verb. While the uncountable nouns have only one form (no plural form). They always use a singular verb. They cannot use “a, an, or a number before it.” They are often abstract ideas, liquid or gases, some food. etc. If you want to quantify or count an uncountable noun, just specify by using a unit of measurement. This is called the partitive structure.
