Agreement Countable Or Uncountable Noun

On the other hand, countless names cannot be counted. They have a singular shape and have no plural shape – you can`t add a S. Z.B. Dirt, rice, information and hair. Some countless names are abstract nouns like advice and knowledge. Zedco posted a loss of $35 million last year. Management (1) is aware that it has made mistakes. The press (2) printed out all the stories and articles that criticize the company. The Board of Directors of Zedco (3) knows that it now has to make difficult decisions. Of course, employees (4) are concerned about their jobs and (5) want/want a meeting with management as soon as possible. But Chief Executive Barry Douglas says things aren`t that bad. He said the company still has (6) a great future ahead of it. After a singular or an innumerable noun and according to him, she or it, we use a singular verb.

The two names are often written as separate words, but we sometimes use a dash (-), or we write them as a single word. Look at the underlined names. Are they unnamed or unnamed? We can also follow this structure with a plural noun. Nouns such as luggage, furniture and jewellery are countless names and take singular verbs. However, if you are referring to different fruits, you can use the fruit as a detectable nostunus. In light of this brief and simplified presentation of the ontological and cognitive basis of the innumable/countable distinction, we should be able to hypothesize that languages that are quite close, such as English and Swedish, spoken mainly by people of relatively similar cultures, should not be very different when it comes to knowing which names matter and which are innumerable. That assumption is correct. For the vast majority of names, there is no difference in counting between the English name and its Swedish counterpart.

It is also important to understand that this distinction between subtantes and innumerable is not ad hoc. Instead, it is based on what the world is, or at least on how language users see the world and the different types of entities that can be called by the nouns. Some countable names have meanings similar to the myriad of names above. An unspeakable noun (for example. B water) is neither singular nor plural. You can`t count the water. We can say water or a little water, but no water or two. Tell me what it is.

For each image, use two of these names: here are some examples of countless names. Can I have water? Do you want us to sit on the grass? The money is pretty safe. I love music. Would you like some butter? Many and some go only with plural nouns. There weren`t many bottles. I made sandwiches. We use a pair knot for a two-part thing that are the same. A few pairs of names are twin, glasses, jeans, pants, pajamas, scissors, shorts, tights, pants.
