Countable and uncountable nouns

Countable nouns have a singular and a plural form.

You must use a / an / the / one / my/his/her/our/your with singular countable nouns.

You can use other numbers (2+), the, some, many, a lot of, my/his/her/our/your (or nothing) with plural countable nouns.

Uncountable nouns have no plural form.

We can't use a / an or numbers before an uncountable noun.

We use the, my/his/her/our/your, some, much (or nothing) before an uncountable noun.

NOTE: these are general rules.
There are some exceptions (places where these rules can be broken.)
