English Learn Grammar - Uncountable Nouns ✔Lesson transcript: https://adeptenglish.com/lessons/english-learn-grammar-uncountable-nouns/
English grammar is far more complicated than it needs to be. The English language has collected a lot of anachronistic language rules, so many that over time the language regularly breaks its own English grammar rules. Or as we like to say, there are some exceptions to the rule, begging the question,
why have rules if you don’t follow them!
Anachronistic is a word I haven’t used in a while, it means that something is out of its time. You might see a room full of modern furniture and on its own amongst the modern furniture you might see a piece of furniture that is out of place, old-fashioned maybe. Well, that’s a good analogy for some English grammar rules and the English language!
I honestly expected to put together a quick and thorough lesson on uncountable-nouns in no time. However, it was like a can of worms, as soon as I took the lid off the topic it went everywhere, and as often happens with English grammar I remembered all the “Exceptions to the rules” that I, as a native English speaker, have automatically learned, but as a new language learner they might catch you out.
So this English lesson was longer and more complicated than I expected, but I hope I have put together a comprehensive explanation of English uncountable nouns in this English podcast lesson. Listen to the podcast several times to make sure you catch all the exceptions.
