COUNTABLES & UNCOUNTABLES NOUNS

Tema
COUNTABLES & UNCOUNTABLE NOUNS
Resumen del tema
·         We could define nouns as words that we use to identify people, objects, concepts andideas of the world around us. can be classified as follows:
 countable - (Countable Nouns): Those who can "tell", ie you can set the number in units. For example:

chair
chair
to chair a chair
two chairs two chairs
pencil pencil
a pencil pencil
five five pencils pencils
elephant elephant
an elephant an elephant
seven seven elephants elephants
The plural count nouns have, you can use numbers in front of them to express their quantity and indefinite articles (A - AN).
 Uncountable nouns - (uncountable nouns): They are called this way those nouns thatcan not determine their number in units. For example:

flour
flour
milk milk
wood wood
snow snow
sugar sugar
wine wine
tea tea

In some of these cases it is possible to count if taken as referenciael product packaging, for example:
a bottle of wine
a glass of milk
a cup of tea

In the case of uncountable nouns can not form the plural, since it is not possible to say "flour", "milk" and so on. Nor can we express a number and putting much less useindefinite articles before (A - AN).
·         The words as sugar and countless money are in Spanish, since we can not say "two sugars", "three funds."
In English there are and have the following characteristics:

No articles can be used with a / an - is incorrect to say "a money" can not pluralized. 
It is incorrect to say "3 Electricities" They take singular verb. The sugar is. - It is incorrect to say "The sugar are ..."

Other help may be thinking that the quantifiers are countless as much and little, while the quantifiers are countable as Many and Few.

the characteristics of an uncountable noun can not have numbers, you can not put a /an, can not end in s / s, are always singular.

the count nouns are those who can count, such as chairs, people, fruit, vegetables, etc..
The count nouns can be counted (one car, two bees) and countless need a modifier to express amount (a glass of water).
