    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.         



       piece            furniture



       Let me give you a piece of advice



       bar                soap


       This is the last bar of soap



       bowl             soup


    Some more examples:

       a loaf of bread

       a plate of pasta

      a chunk of meat, of cheese     

       a slice of ham, of meat
