    uncountable nouns 是指不可數的名詞, 字典一般以 [U] 為標記. 可數的則是 [C].

    雖然很多名詞都不可以加 s, 但這不等於他們一定是 [U].

    你打出來的那堆單字, 其實有些並不算是 [U]:

    aircraft, sheep, salmon, children, mice, feet 已有眾數意思, 不必加 s 等等變體.

    knives 是 a knife 的眾數.

    potato(es) 是可數的. (說一個個的可以數, 說薯溶 mashed potato, 可以不加 es)

    a geese 是鵝的單數, goose 是它的眾數.

    pianos 是眾數.

    wood 作為木材, 一般的材料意思, 是 [U], 但若指明個別的木料, 卻可以是數得的!

    (e.g. We need some wood [U] to build a hut. Pine is a soft wood [C].)

    cheese(es) 一般當不可數, 但有些情況是可以的.

    (e.g. I like cheese [U]. I prefer hard cheeses[C], such as Cheddar.)

    各類名詞再給你多一個例子如下:

    2) spaghetti

    3) lemonade

    4) wood

    5) luggage

    6) knowledge

    7) physics
