    Uncountable nouns


    How to count uncountable nouns !


    Uncountable nouns refer to things we cannot count; we can't count water, rice.

                                                     we can't say:     one water

                                                                                  two waters

                                                                                  three rices

    But we sometimes need to explain the quantity of something which is uncountable. This can be done by using appropriate words.

                                                                                  a glass of water

                                                                                 two bottles of water

                                                                                 three grains of rice

    Here are some of these words.         

                                                                      advice

                                                                      information

                                                piece            furniture

                                                                      luggage

                                                                      news

                                              Let me give you a piece of advice

                                      

                                                                      chocolate

                                                bar                soap

                                                                      butter

                                                This is the last bar of soap

                                     

                                                                      cider

                                                bowl             soup

                                                                      rice

    Some more examples:

                                           a loaf of bread

                                           a plate of pasta

                                           a chunk of meat, of cheese     

                                           a slice of ham, of meat
