    Hello there. I have read in a grammar book I purchased that subjunctive mood should be used in condition of uncertainty. Example. If she have the money, she will make it in the city.

    I used to use has for the third person. I would like to clarify this, because there are some English novels which use has instead of have. :)

WHY (some)is incorrect for the fist question?!!!
please review it

Profile photo of brala brala

    Some is correct in the first question. You had to choose the answer that was incorrect. Always be careful what the question asks you. All the best!

      Yeah, you’re right! Sometimes we do not even read the instructions and just go through the quiz, and this is what happens.
      As simple as that!!!

Hi, Rebecca
tell me, please, why advice is uncountable noun?
I think, we can say “He gave me too many advices”
even if you mean an opinion by this word, we still can count them – “one opinion, two opinions”

give me the answer, please :)

Profile photo of growman growman

    What if we’re not sure if a noun is countable or uncountable? For example “information”. I saw “an information” or “informations”, and sometimes I get confused, maybe not because of the word “information” because I know that it is uncountable, but how actually native speakers treat this kind of situation, when they don’t know if a noun is count or non-count? Or, how does it sound, when we say for instance “an information” or “informations”.

    I’m just curious, I’m not saying that I want to speak that way, I just want to know how native people react when someone pluralize non-count nouns. :)

    Profile photo of morfik morfik

      When you make this kind of mistake when speaking to a native speaker, it is understood that you have not mastered the language. In some cases, it may not matter, like social situations. In other cases, like a job interview, it may be problematic if they are looking for someone who speaks English well. So try your best to learn as much as you can. English speakers learn this point automatically as they grow up with the language. My best wishes to you.

      Profile photo of Rebecca Rebecca

    I know it is confusing to remember why one noun is uncountable and another is uncountable, aside from realizing that we can count some things. You cannot think about it too much, especially when it comes to the uncountable nouns. You just have to accept that they are used that way. That is why I made a resource on the subject to help students – you can find it in the resources section of our site. You cannot say ‘many advices”, but you can say “many pieces of advice”. All the best to you with your English!

    Profile photo of Rebecca Rebecca

Thank you Rebecca for all you efforts .

Profile photo of momen22 momen22

Yes, sometimes it’s hard to guess, if the noun is countable or not. Who would expect that “fruit” is uncountable and “vegetable’ is countable? They should be in the same category.

Profile photo of kamila kamila

    I use, “fruit” for one, and “fruits” for many. I know that I should use “fruits” when I deal with different kinds or something, but I really don’t see any difference. Why should I say “fruit” when I have many fruits. xD The same with “fish” and “fishes”, how do I know if there are different types of them, “There are fishes!” xD

    Profile photo of morfik morfik

      For that matter of fact, about fish and fishes, shrimp and shrimps . Methinks it`s okay
      I get it, the bizarre thing it about “person” “persons” ,”people” “peoples”
      I know that the plural form of person it people,nevertheless I figure out that it could used with “S”
      in this way : ^persons^ merely in formal documents and situations.
      e.g. All persons born in India are citizens of India .
      ^peoples^ when it means race or nation owing to it`s countable in this sense .
      e.g. African peoples . ^_^

Hi Rebecca. i red onec that advice could be cauntable. we can change c to s an d so es. is it wright?

best wishes.

Ahmed

ahmed69

    Advice is always uncountable. You are given a lot of advice or a piece of advice.

    Advise with an s is a verb. So you’d say “he gave me some good advice” or “he advised me to do xyz”

    Sofia

      thank u for the replay

      ahmed69

      Yes, Ahmed, Sofia is right. Thanks Sophia. My best to both of you.

Hi Rebecca
Wouldn’t it be right to say “a little pizza” when we are refering to a small pizza?
And if pizza is a countable noun, why it’s not written “pizzas”?
I’m looking forward your answer
Thank you

Neusa

    You could say: We ordered 8 pizzas for the party.
    It’s fine to use the word in that way. All the best.

I’d just like to ask one question.There are some nouns that end with “s”.
So what if the noun ends with “s” like french fries .I am a bit confused.Is it countable or non countable.Can you give further explanation on this?

    French fry is a countable noun,

When you say in the quiz

Would you like ____ pizza?

You said in the lesson that we can use both for count or non-count nouns using SOME

Is correct to say Would you like some pizza/ or Would you like a few or a little pizza?

:)

Profile photo of gelines2013 gelines2013

    You were asked to choose the answer that is WRONG.
    The only one that is wrong there is ” Would you like a few pizza?”, so that is the correct answer.

Hi, Rebecca.
I’m Spanish, and Spanish people often have very serious problems with uncountable nouns, because our concept of these things.
For exemple, I can say to you “don’t drink a litle of wine a day”, and it’s an advice. And I can say to you “don’t smoke forty cigarettes a day”, and it’s another advice. For a Spanish person, I’ve just given you “two advices”.
For example, maybe five years ago it rained in my city, and then, three years ago it rained again, and yesterday it rained, too. For a Spanish person, it would be correct to talk about “the recent rains”. (There was three rains last week).
You can be watching the news, and you hear an information about the president. Then, you hear another information about the defence minister… For a Spanish person, you’ve heard two informations.
It’s not always so easy… as a Spanish, I have to learn all the uncountable English nouns by heart, there is no criteria I can use.
Thanks for your lessons, your page have the best material I’ve found in the Internet!

ruben

    … litre of wine… (not litle of wine).

    ruben

      …and, of course… there WERE three rains (not was).
      I have to pratise a lot to avoid these kind of errors when I speak and talk “without thinking on it”, it’s obvious…

      ruben

    Hi Ruben!
    Information is uncountable noun. OK?

    Profile photo of sweetlullaby1 sweetlullaby1

      Hi. Yes it’s uncountable .

      Profile photo of Soei Soei

    Thank you. I’m glad you found the resource helpful. Yes, it is always difficult when one’s native language behaves differently from the language we are learning. It requires serious memorization, as you said. Good for you that you are doing what you need to do to master English. My best wishes to you, Ruben.

    Profile photo of Rebecca Rebecca

Thanks Rebecca for your lesson.
I failed to chose “some pizza” at the first Q.
It is wrong?

…and – because of our concept – the of was missing.
Every time I read what I wrote, I find more errors!!!! jajajajajaja. I have to improve a lot!

      The question asks you to choose the answer that is wrong, not the answer that is wrong! Many students did not read the question carefully and got it wrong. One always has to be careful to read the questions properly on tests and that is why we give you such kinds of questions in our quizzes. Hope this helps! All the best, as always, Fatima.

        I meant :

Hi, I did the quiz, but I have a doubt.
The exercise 1 ask for the INCORRET item.
Pizza is a countable noumn right? Then, I should use “few pizza”, in this way, the only incorrect item is “little pizza” (talking about quantity), but at the end is showed the item “a few” like as the correct answer (incorrect form).

Could you explain me please? Thanx… ;)

@fatiima, Thank you for your explanations. But I am kinda confused. You say a few people and few people, according to ‘desk example’, we can say few person, Right? I don’t know. But Thanx in any way. I think there was a lesson on few , a few etc.

Profile photo of enis enis

    @ Enis: We don’t use “few person” from what I know. I think your “desk example” is incorrect.
    “person” is a singular noun and “people” is a plural noun.

    examples:
    Few people can run 100 meters in under 11 seconds.
    There are a few people who can run 100 meters in under 11 seconds.
    There is one person who has run 100 meters in 9.63 seconds.

I’d like to thank you for this lesson. But I also want to ask about something that I saw on X-men cartoon and I didn’t understand what the character meant.
A girl says to her friend: What just happened?
and the boys replies to her: He happened(aiming at Wolverine)…
What I wanna know is what does “He happened” mean?
Because I can see that “he happened” is not the same as in “What just happened?.” The word happen has another meaning…
Thanks

Profile photo of henry19 henry19

    Yes, they are using it in an unusual way to try and say that Wolverine is so amazingly powerful that his arrival can be described by saying, “He happened!” It is a very creative, liberal and imaginative use of the language, but then that’s the fun, right? Enjoy learning from cartoons, but accept that sometimes they may use English is untypical ways and sometimes they may just use slang. Great that you are so interested in English. All the best to you.

Unfortunately, a lot of students made mistakes in the first question on the quiz because they did not read the question carefully enough. You had to choose the one thing you could NOT say, and so the one thing you could not say was, ” Would you like a few pizza?” That was the correct answer. You could certainly say,

Would you like some pizza?
Would you like a little pizza?

Both of these are correct.

Please watch out for these kinds of questions on tests as they are quite common. Also, on the TOEFL exam, they have what are called “negative fact” questions. So that is why many students have asked questions regarding the pizza question. Hope this clarifies all your doubts. My very best wishes to all of you. You are all very brave for learning English!

I have a question about this question: Would you like _____ pizza? Which of the following is incorrect?
The answer should be “a little”, because pizza is countable noun, so in this sentence a few or some both are correct.
Am I right?

    Pizza is uncountable like sugar, milk, water, oil, wine, beer, sand etc. You can say “a piece of pizza” and than it is countable (because piece is countable…)

Hi Rebecca,

thank you for your lesson.

It got 90% just had one mistake even though i saw the lesson and also i downloaded the reference too , actually i try to overcome this problem it still confuses me but at least i do believe that we won’t realize this grammar rule except by practice we will notice it and how to use whether countable or non countable . however thanks Ms. Rebecca :D

I didn’t get the first question, as pizza is countable and uncountable both then as per your “trick” i can say a few pizza but it sounds weird, then how come a little pizza is okay. Plz explain.

Profile photo of irinadiplo irinadiplo

Thanks a lot!
if it is confusing to say much or many than use a lot of instead, it will be correct anyway

I’m in doubt about the noun roast chicken. Is it countable ou non-count noun? Can I ask “How many roast chickens are there in the fridge?” or How much roast chicken is there in the fridge?” Which one is correct?

Long time i mistake, i alway use “many informations” :D

Thank you very much, teacher!

Profile photo of lhthao lhthao

i would like to ask you, if would you to tell what else uncontable nouns like: information, knowladge, luggage, information, advice, weather, progress, traffic, damage, furniture, homework, research,
equipment, money…or we have just these (irregular uncontable)

Dear Rebecca!
Im so excited about your wonderful and so useful lesson!!
Thank you you for your work and help!
Can you help me also with one my difficulty…
The word “RISK” , is it countable or uncountable?I always thought that it is uncountable, but today i was at the lesson( at my university) and the teacher said me something that i can’t understand….She said its countable…Is it right or not?

Hi Rebecca,
I am quite confused. Why are we using “a few” for Pizza. Isn’t it fine to use “some”.
Would you like some pizza? or
Would you like a few pizza?

Thank you Rebecca. Good lessons to understand.

Thank you Rebecca for the trick.
I was taught that singular form of countable noun is used following to “no” or “any” while plural form is used after “some”, “a lot/lots of” or “plenty of”. E.g.: We don’t have any book. There is no chair in the classroom, but there are plenty of them over there.
However in your lesson you gave some examples like: “I don’t have any tables” or “There is no books”. I heard some people use the same like you do. It confuses me.
Please give us a lesson explaining when to use singular or plural form of nouns after some, no, any, none, etc. If such a lesson has already done, please give me a link because I cannot find it. Many thanks and all the best.

Despite that was really so confusing, but I got 10 out of 10 correct again. Thx Rebecca.
I believe that English as any other language, is not about being logical as much as getting used to it.

Hi mam! Hope you are doing good. This video has given me a clear picture about article usage. But I have few doubts too. First of all, food is considered as an uncountable noun, but I knew many people they say that was a good food, that was a good music. Here they use the indefinite article “A” how it is acceptable…pls correct me if I am wrong.

i am an ESL teacher and a native ( but bilingual) speaker. I just want to say that i often check your lessons to see HOW to explain things . Things that I know how to do correctly but don’t know why ! In five years no student has ever said ” Oh i watched this lesson last night on Engvid!” Haa haa. BUT I do also, as a thank you- recommend this site ( and you) to every class. :)
