Answer:

Well, I can count at least #"14"..........."structural isomers...."#

Explanation:

And these 14 isomers are alcohols, and ethers. And this reflects the fiendish connectivity of the carbon atom. You start with a relatively small, modest formula of #C_5H_12O#, and you end up with an array of different structure, all with distinct physical, and chemical properties.
