# How can we know that a noun is countable or not?

Apr 25, 2016

It's countable if you can put a number directly before it.

#### Explanation:

Example:
Countable: one horse, two horses, many horses.

Non-countables often have a measure before it, like:
One liter of water, a piece of furniture

Also, the non-countables often don't have a plural.
