Uncountable nouns are things that can’t be counted by using a number, such as quantities of liquids or gases, as well as abstract ideas or qualities.
Uncountable nouns are used with a single verb, and do not use a definite article such as ‘a’ or ‘an’:
For example, do not say ‘How many moneys will it cost?’.
Because ‘money’ is an uncountable noun, you must use adjectives like much, a lot of, little, a little bit of, some, plenty, enough, or no.
· How much money will it cost?
· Will it cost a lot of money?
· It only costs a little bit of money.
· It will cost you some money, but not a lot of money.
· Do you have enough money?
· I have plenty of money.
· I have no money.
(The only time money is a countable noun is when we are speaking of specific denominations: ‘I have many rupees’, or ‘That sounds like a lot of Euros!’)
