Count and non count nouns

We all were taught that a noun is a person, place, or thing and the difference between a noun and a pronoun. However there are another two types of nouns that many people aren’t always entirely aware of; count and non count nouns. Count nouns are defined as tangible. Things you can see, count, divide and heard. Non count nouns are not tangible, can have a broad definition, and are regarded as a whole and cannot be multiplied, or divided.

Examples of count nouns include pronouns and objects. He is a count noun, so is she, the car, the cat, the noise and the shirt. These nouns can be shown as plural, usually by adding an S to the end, but otherwise follow normal grammar rules.

Non count nouns are different. They include things that people sense or things with a broad definition, such as anger, education, weather, and fear. There is no way to make these words plural because there is simply no need to.

Some words can be both count and non count nouns depending entirely on the way that it is used. Light is one of these words. In the sentence “Sure, you can turn on the lights,” the word light is used as a plural and is a count noun. However, if you wish to explain that light travels faster than sound then light has become a non count noun.
