Watch this lesson to improve your English dramatically in just a few minutes. Then test yourself with the quiz: http://www.engvid.com/common-english-grammar-errors-with-plurals/ TRANSCRIPT Hi. I'm Rebecca from engVid. We're going to start and end this lesson with a short quiz to see where you are before, and where you are after. All right? Let's get started. So, which of these verbs is correct to use in these sentence? In these sentences? Do we say: "Economics is very important." or do we say: "Economics are very important."? Okay? Well, we say: "Economics is very important." You'll understand why in a few minutes. The next one: "The children is asleep." or: "The children are asleep?" Which one is correct? It should be: "The children are asleep." Okay? Again, you'll understand why. Last one: "The fish is very beautiful." or: "The fish are very beautiful."? Which is correct? Well, that's a good question, because actually, both are correct. It depends if you're talking about one fish or whether you're talking about many fish. And you'll understand that also, as soon as we go on. So, we could say: "The fish is very beautiful." We could say: "The fish are very beautiful." I'll explain. So, in this lesson today, we're going to be talking about irregular plural nouns, which is an area which is... Which causes a lot of confusion for many students. Many grammar errors are because of this issue, so it's really good that you're watching so you won't make this kind of mistake. So let's look at what the problem areas are. The problem is that normally, when we have a singular word... Right? So if we say: "the chair", then we use a singular verb. Right? "The chair is", so that... When that happens, when we use the right noun with the right verb, then that's called subject-verb agreement. "That chair is in the room." But we say, if it's plural: "The chairs are in the room." Correct? So this was singular, singular; plural, plural. That's the normal way. And most of the time, that's absolutely fine. However, the reason why students get confused is because, unfortunately in English, we also have irregular nouns, which don't follow those rules and they follow separate rules. But you can understand it because we can group them in certain categories to help you understand them. So, first of all, we have irregular singular nouns. So these are confusing a little bit because they end with "s", but they are singular. They should be singular. So, for example, we say: "Politics is", "The news is good.", "Mathematics is difficult for some students.", "Ethics is very important in life." Okay? So don't get fooled by the fact that there is an "s" there as part of the noun. Okay? It's still singular. So there's one category of irregular singular nouns. Next one: irregular plural nouns. Here, there is no "s", but it's plural. "Children are", "The mice are", "My feet are hurting.", "The men are", "The women are", "My teeth are", "The geese are". Okay? So here, what was confusing is that there's no "s", and yet, the answer is that the correct verb to use is that it's... Is "are". Right? Is the plural verb. So that's the irregular plural nouns. And then last, we have a category which can be even more confusing, but luckily there's not too many examples in this category, and these are the irregular unchanging nouns. What does that mean? That means that whether you have one fish or two fish, you still say: "Fish". Okay? Generally speaking, that's what you can keep in mind. The same with "deer", and "sheep", and "moose". "One moose, two moose". You're probably not very likely to talk so much about moose, but that's how it is. So if you're, say... If you're talking about one fish, or one deer, or one sheep, or one moose, you can say: "The deer is very beautiful." But if you're talking about many deer, you can still say: "The deer are very beautiful." Okay? Depends if you're talking about one or more than one. So in this case, the noun is unchanging, so that's what causes a little bit of confusion in this category, because you could use either one, but you still have to use the right one. Because if you're talking about more than one, you have to make sure you use the plural verb; if you're talking about one, you use one... You use the singular one. In a second, we'll do a really short quiz to see how well you've learned this.

Basic English Grammar -- Chapter 02 -- Singular and Plural nouns Singular Noun Definition: When a noun means one only, it is said to be singular. Examples: boy, girl, book, church, box Plural Noun Definition: When a noun means more than one, it is said to be plural. Examples: boys, girls, books, churches Rule #1 The plural of nouns is usually formed by adding s to a singular noun. Example: lamp, lamps; cat, cats; fork, forks; flower, flowers; pen, pens Rule #2 Nouns ending in s, z, x, sh, and ch form the plural by adding es. Example: moss, mosses buzz, buzzes box, boxes dish, dishes church, churches Special Note: If you add s to such nouns as fox, bush, and bench, you will find that you cannot pronounce them without making an additional syllable. This is why such nouns form the plural by adding es. Rule #3 Nouns ending in y preceded by a consonant is formed into a plural by changing y to ies. Examples: lady, ladies; city, cities; army, armies Rule #4 Nouns ending in y preceded by a vowel form their plurals by adding s. Example: boy, boys; day, days Rule #5 Most nouns ending in o preceded by a consonant is formed into a plural by adding es. Example: hero; heroes; grotto, grottoes Rule #6 Some nouns ending in f or fe are made plural by changing f or fe to ves. Example: beef, beeves; wife, wives

Transcript: Hello and welcome. In this lesson, I will teach you the seven rules that you need to know for using articles in English correctly. Articles are the words ‘a’, ‘an’, and ‘the’. There is a final quiz at the end of the lesson for you to test your understanding. OK, the first rule is about where to use ‘a’ and where to use ‘an’. So rule number one is use ‘a’ before a consonant sound, and ‘an’ before a vowel sound. So in all of these words – you see that they start with a consonant sound. Cat starts with /k/, dog starts with /d/, boy with /b/, girl with /g/, house with /h/ and tree with /t/. So we say ‘a cat’, ‘a dog’, ‘a boy’, ‘a girl’, ‘a house’, ‘a tree’ etc. Notice that in natural speech, we don’t say ‘a’, we say ‘uh’ – like ‘a cat’. In this next set of words, you see that, they all start with a vowel sound – apple starts with /ae/, engineer starts with /e/, ice-cream with /ai/, old with /o/, umbrella with /uh/. So we say ‘an apple’, ‘an engineer’, ‘an ice-cream cone’, ‘an old womman’, ‘an umbrella’ and so on. In speech, we don’t say ‘an’, we say /ən/. Let’s do a small exercise. You see ten items on the screen. For each one, I want you to say if you would use ‘a’ or ‘an’ before it. Stop the video, think about it, then play the video again and check. OK here are the answers. Did you get them all right? I want to focus on items number seven to ten because these are a little tricky. Number seven is ‘a university’ because even though ‘university’ starts with the letter ‘u’ the first sound of the word is not a vowel sound. We don’t say /ooniversity/. We say /yoo-nə- vər-si-ty/ so that first sound is a /y/ sound, which a consonant sound, so we say ‘a university.’ Number eight is similar. The word ‘European’ starts with a /y/ sound, so ‘a European tour.’ In number nine, the spelling has an ‘h’ at the start but that ‘h’ is silent. We don’t say /hau-ər/, we say /au-ər/. The first sound is an /au/ sound which is a vowel sound, so this is ‘an hour’. In the same way, in number ten, we say MA. ‘M’ starts with an /e/ sound which is again a vowel sound, so ‘an MA in English’. OK let’s move on to rule number two: Use ‘a’ and ‘an’ ONLY with singular, countable nouns. We say that a noun is countable if we can count it – one, two, three, four etc. All of these words on the screen are countable. We can say one elephant, three cars, ten teachers, five hundred onions and so on. Now if you talk about one person or thing, like one elephant or one car, then that’s called a singular noun and if you say ten teachers or five hundred onions, those are called plural nouns. Uncountable nouns cannot be counted in this way. Nouns like water, sugar, milk, love, anger, knowledge are some examples. If you think about it, you cannot say “I drank four waters” or “I want eight milks”. To a person, you can say “I love you” but you can’t say “I have five loves for you” – that doesn’t make any sense. So these are all uncountable. Alright, so the rule is - you can only use ‘a’ and ‘an’ if you’re talking about one person or one thing. Let’s do another quick exercise. Here are ten items again. This time, you see ‘a’ or ‘an’ before the nouns, but some of these are wrong. They should NOT have ‘a’ or ‘an’ before them. Stop the video, identify the mistakes, then play the video again and check. OK, here are the answers. Number three is wrong because ‘shirts’ is a plural and you cannot use ‘a’ or ‘an’ before a plural noun. Number five is wrong because ‘happiness’ is uncountable, so again, ‘a’ or ‘an’ cannot be used there. The same goes for number six – water is uncountable. Number nine is wrong because ‘doctors’ is a plural – you can say ‘a doctor’ but not ‘a doctors’. And finally, in number ten, advice is an uncountable noun – so you cannot ask for ‘an advice’. Now a quick note here: the article ‘the’ can be used with all kinds of nouns – singular or plural countable nouns, and uncountable nouns. OK, so let’s now talk about how to choose between ‘a’ or ‘an’ and ‘the’. Here’s rule number three: Use ‘a’ or ‘an’ to talk about a person or thing unknown to your listener. And use ‘the’ to talk about a person or thing known to your listener. For example, “My sister has two computers: a PC and a laptop. The PC is quite old but the laptop is brand new.” I say ‘a PC’ and ‘a laptop’ because that’s the first time I’m mentioning the two computers. That is, until this point, they are unknown to you, the listener.

In this English language video, we look at how to make plural nouns in English. We look at: - Regular nouns adding -S to the end. - Nouns ending in S, CH, SH, X, and Z (adding -ES to the end) - Nouns ending in F or FE (the -VES rule) - Nouns ending in a VOWEL + Y (these are regular) - Nouns ending in a CONSONANT + Y (the -IES rule) - Nouns ending in a VOWEL + O (these are regular) - Nouns ending in a CONSONANT + O (the -ES rule) - Irregular nouns that do not end in S in their plural form (e.g. child) - Nouns that remain the same in singular and plural form (e.g. sheep) For more details and examples, visit our grammar website: http://www.grammar.cl/Notes/Plural_Nouns.htm We also have Regular and Irregular Nouns in English Summary Charts that can be used in the ELL / ESL classroom.

An abstract noun is a word that means a general concept or idea, like "life" or "friendship". We can use "the" with common nouns, as in "the sky is blue". But can we use "the" with abstract nouns? For example, would you say "happiness is important" or "the happiness is important"? If you are not sure, watch this lesson to learn when to use "the" with general and abstract nouns. Don't forget to take the quiz afterwards to test your understanding! http://www.engvid.com/grammar-the-common-abstract-nouns/ TRANSCRIPT Hi. I'm Rebecca from engVid. Many English learners have trouble deciding when to use "the" or no "the", so I understand that problem, I know it can be a little bit confusing, but I believe that by the end of this lesson, you're going to find it much easier. Okay? So let's start with a little quiz first to see where you stand regarding that word "the". So, let's look at this first example. Should you say: "Life is beautiful." or "The life is beautiful."? Okay. Think about it. Decide. Another one: "Friendship is precious." or "The friendship is precious."? Which one is right? Think for yourself. We'll do one more, and then I'll give you the answers. "Happiness is important." or "The happiness is important."? Which one is correct? Do you know? How do you know? How do you decide which one is right? I'll tell you. When we're talking about something which is a general concept or idea, then we do not use "the". Okay? For example, let's take the first one. "Life is beautiful." Now, life is a general concept, so we do not need "the". So, this is the correct answer. All right? Not this. "Life is beautiful." Because life is a general idea, a general concept. Okay? We're not talking about anything specific. If we say: "The life of wise people is beautiful." that is something specific, and then we would be correct to say: "The life". Okay? But if we're just talking in general, then no "the". Let's look at the next example. "Friendship is precious." Again, friendship is a general idea or a general concept, so this is correct. Okay? In this example, this one was wrong. But if I said, for example: "The friendship between those two children is precious." then that would be fine, because now I'm specifying which friendship. Right? The friendship between those two children, so then it becomes specific, and then we would use "the". But in this example, this is correct. Okay? Just like this was, and this is wrong, because this is a general idea. Okay? Next one: "Happiness is important." By now you know, again, happiness is a general idea, a general concept, so this is correct. In this example, it would be wrong to say: "The happiness", because: The happiness of what? So, if we say: "The happiness of my family is important." that's fine. That's very good. That would be a perfect sentence. But in this case, we cannot say: "The happiness is important." because we didn't specify which happiness. Okay? So, in this case, that's wrong, and this is correct. Okay? Now, the same principle applies to these. See if you can figure it out. Okay? "I want to make money." or "I want to make the money."? Which one do you think is right? Are we speaking in general, or are we speaking specifically? Well, we are speaking in general right now, so this is correct, because we're just talking about money; we didn't say which money. I want to make money. Right? General idea. If I said, for example: "I want to make the money I need to pay my rent." that's specific, so then I could say: "the money", because I'm explaining after that which money. Okay? But in this example, no. Next one: "She wants to lose weight." or "She wants to lose the weight."? Is it general or is it specific? What do you think? It's still general. Good. By now you're getting really smart. "She wants to lose weight." is a general term. Right? We're just talking about weight in general; not any specific weight. But if I say: "She wants to lose the weight she put on during the holidays." that's specific, and then I need "the". Okay? But not in this example. So, last one here: "He needs to earn respect." or do we say: "He needs to earn the respect."? Is it general or is it specific? By now you know, you'll really know. It's general. Very good. Okay? Because we didn't talk about any specific respect; we're talking about respect in general. So: "He needs to earn respect." But if this was being used, it would be something like: "He needs to earn the respect of his peers." Peers are people your age. Okay? Or: "He needs to earn the respect of his employees." for example, or "of his parents". Then it becomes specific. Which respect? The respect of his parents, the respect of his employees. All right? So, if it was specific, then we could say "the", but when we're just talking in general, we don't need "the". "Life is beautiful.", "Friendship is precious.", "Happiness is important.", "I want to make money.", "She wants to lose weight.", "He needs to earn respect."

Certain English nouns only have a plural form. Their form is always plural, never singular. There are 3 types of nouns where the form is always plural: 1) Certain articles of clothing. trousers knickers pyjamas shorts tights pants Example: I like your trousers. 2) Certain tools or instruments. headphones scissors sunglasses binoculars glasses Examples: Can I borrow your headphones? We use the following structure for ONE unit (singular) of the clothes and tools previously mentioned: "pair of" + noun Example: I need a pair of shorts. We use the following structure for several units (plural): "pairs of" + noun Example: I am going to buy 3 pairs of scissors. 3) Other nouns with only a plural form belongings Example: "Do not leave your belongings in the classroom." savings Example: "I spent my savings on a new car." clothes Example: "His clothes are dirty." stairs Example: To go to the first floor, you can take the stairs. There are many more examples with a detailed explanation in the video. The accent is a British English accent.

Join Sandra and I as we study articles. Don't forget to read the notes below. See you in class! ***** In English there are two types of articles; definite and indefinite. Articles precede and describe nouns. THE INDEFINITE ARTICLE First, let's look at the indefinite article. There are two; a and an. Indefinite articles are used when when the subject of the noun is not specific, or to introduce something that is not known to the listener. We do not put a/an in front of plural nouns, they can only be used in front of singular nouns. For example; He always goes to a small place. (We don't know the place) We know an old woman. (We don't know the woman) I love red shoes! (Plural noun) A or an? A is used in front of consonant sounds, and an is used in front of vowel sounds. Usually, this is easy; if the word starts with a consonant, use a, if it starts with a vowel, use an, but remember that we are talking about pronunciation, and not spelling. This is important because sometimes we pronounce consonants as vowels and vice versa. For example; A dog An ambulance A UN decision (UN is pronounced "you-en", which starts with a consonant) An SOS message (SOS is pronounced "es-oh-es" which starts with a vowel) FIXED EXPRESSIONS WITH A/AN We also use a/an in expressions such as: Half an hour Twice a year a few €2 a litre A or one? You can use a/an or one in front of singular countable nouns to mean the same thing, for example: We are going to Canada for a year We are going to Canado for one year But it's important to remember that one is a number, and that a/an are articles. So we only use one when we want to emphasise the quantity, for example; I want one orange juice (not two!!) Are you staying only one night? (not more than one!!) THE DEFINITE ARTICLE Definite articles are used when the subject of the noun has been mentioned before. For example; The woman takes a small child. I sometimes see the child. I know a place. It is the big place. Definite articles are also used when the subject of the noun is already known to the listener. For example; I never see the small part. (We already know the part) The right eyes are always different. (We already know the eyes) As you can see, definite articles can be used in front of singular and plural nouns, and before consonants and vowels. THE ZERO ARTICLE In certain specific situations in English we don't use any article (called the zero article). Usually this is when we talk about concepts, rather than specific things, for example; I love to play sport (not the sport) They are afraid of heights (not the heights) Climate can affect your mood (not the climate) There are lots of other rules about the zero article, but they will be covered in other classes.

Learn how to use the words this, that, these and those with this English grammar lesson. These words are used as demonstrative adjectives and sometimes simply as demonstrative pronouns. We use "this" to refer to nouns (objects or people) in the singular which are close to the speaker and "these" for the plural. For nouns far from the speaker, "that" is used for the singular and those in the plural. For actions in the present or the near future, we use "this", for example, "This meal is nice" (during the meal). But for actions which have finished and in the past, we use "that". Example talking about a football match: "That match was great yesterday." We always use "this is" when introducing ourselves and other people. At the end of the English grammar lesson about the demonstratives, I give you an exercise to test your understanding.

Nouns which are always plural – English Grammar and Spoken English lesson Of all the grammar concepts we have, “plural” seems to be one of the most uncomplicated. You got one thing? It’s singular. Got more than one thing? It’s plural. But alas, language is always less undemanding than we expect. The way we conceptualize something—as one thing or many things—doesn’t always match up with the way our word for it behaves. There are some nouns that only have a plural form, regardless of how we think of them. In this lesson you will learn Nouns which are always in the plural form. Certain nouns only have plural forms and are often used with the expression a pair of are as follows:- a pair of lenses a pair of jeans a pair of shoes a pair of slippers a pair of glasses a pair of gloves a pair of earrings Below are some more nouns that are always in the plural form are as follows :- • Scissors • Clothes • Stairs • Outskirts • Contents • Goods • Firearms • Headquarters • Headphones So hope this lesson is helpful to you all out there if you have some more nouns in mind please feel free to share below.

Learn when to use the words "some" and "any" in the English language with this grammar lesson. We use "some" in three specific situations: 1)In positive affirmative sentences with countable nouns in the plural and with uncountable nouns. Example "There are some apples" and "there is some rice." 2)In questions asking to receive something for example: "Can I have some apples?" or "Can I have some rice?" 3)We use "some" in questions offering something to someone like "Would you like some apples?" We use the word "any" in two situations: 1) In normal questions for countable plural nouns and uncountable nouns, like for example "Do you have any apples?" and "Do you have any rice?" 2) We can also use "any" in negative statements: "I don't want any apples" and "I don't have any rice."

Of all the English grammar concepts we have, “plural” seems to be one of the most uncomplicated. Did you get one thing? It’s singular. Got more than one thing? It’s plural. But alas, language is always less undemanding than we expect. The way we conceptualize something—as one thing or many things—doesn’t always match up with the way our word for it behaves. There are some nouns that only have a plural form, regardless of how we think of them. In this English lesson from Let's Talk English Speaking Institute in Mumbai, you will learn Nouns which are always in the plural form. ANDROID APP - https://goo.gl/HNkjaG APPLE APP - https://goo.gl/j8Uz4P Complete Lesson Transcript - http://www.learnex.in/english-grammar-lesson-english-speaking-institute-mumbai/ Certain nouns only have plural forms and are often used with the expression a pair of are as follows:- a pair of lenses a pair of jeans a pair of shoes a pair of slippers a pair of glasses a pair of gloves a pair of earrings Below are some more nouns that are always in the plural form are as follows:- Scissors Clothes Stairs Outskirts Contents Goods Firearms Headquarters Headphones So hope this English speaking lesson is helpful to you all out there if you have some more nouns in mind please feel free to share below.

Learn the difference between countable and uncountable nouns with this English grammar lesson. Countable nouns are separate objects that we can count. They have a singular and a plural form and we can use the indefinite article with them ("a" or "an") Uncountable nouns are things like liquids, materials or a mass of substance with no boundaries. They only have a singular form and we cannot use "a" or "an" before them. We can use the word "some", for example "There is some rice." Some nouns can be both countable and uncountable depending on the context or situation. It is very important to learn if a noun is countable or not because the English grammar rules for both types of nouns are different. There are subtitles (closed captions) during the video and the accent is a British English accent.

Today you’ll find out the connection between plural nouns and more correct Listening answers. Visit ielts.allearsenglish.com for the simplest and most effective IELTS strategies. In just the last week, I’ve had the same question from 3 different students: “If I answer with a singular noun, but the answer is a plural noun, is my answer wrong?” Yes, yes it is wrong. There are two basic rules you must remember for IELTS Listening: Always write down exactly what the speaker says The grammar of your answer must be correct You have to follow these two rules, or the answer is wrong. This means that you can’t paraphrase, and you can’t change the grammar or word form. So, if the speaker says the noun as a plural, if you write it as singular, with no “s”, your answer will be incorrect. Now, I’ve seen thousands of IELTS Listening Exams and their answers, and I can tell you that the answer is more often a plural noun than a singular noun. So, statistically speaking, you will be correct more often if you add the “s” to the noun in your answer. Also, use your grammar knowledge. If you don’t see an article (a/an/the) before the answer you need, it’s most likely a plural noun. Thus, the rule to take away today is: When in doubt, add the “s” for IELTS Listening answers. If you found today’s video enlightening, and think it would help more people that you know, share it on social media! In our online IELTS course, 3 Keys IELTS, we give you all the strategies and practice you need to score highly on all parts of the IELTS exam.

It's really important that the subjects and the verbs in your sentences agree in terms of plurality. As a colleague of mine at Gotham Writers likes to say, "When your subjects and your verbs don't agree, you have to send them to couples' therapy." So in my grammar class, we send a lot of sentences to couples' therapy. They laugh, they cry, they smoke a cigarette, and they come back much better sentences. So to make sure that your subject and your verb agree when you're dealing with two subjects in the same sentence and one is singular and one is plural, here's what you do. I'm going to give you an example of a sentence that has two subjects: one is plural, and the one is singular. In this case, the sentence is, "The boys and Jill run to the movie theater." So one of our subjects is "the boys", and we also have "Jill". "The boys" are plural, "Jill" is singular, but together, they form a complete plural subject. So in this case, we need the plural form of the verb "run". And to get the plural form of the verb, we drop the "s". So, as a general rule of thumb, whenever you have a sentence with more than one subject or actor--in this case, we have "Jill" plus "the boys"--the subject is plural, and therefore, we need the plural verb.

There are some nouns in English that are simply ALWAYS plural. These are nouns like "glasses," "scissors," "pants," "jeans," "clothes," and several others, all of which are covered in this practical English grammar lesson. Do count and non-count nouns confuse you? This lesson that will make the topic easier for you. So what are you waiting for? If you want to erase some of your doubts and use grammar and vocabulary more accurately, this video will do the trick. Thanks for clicking, and don't forget to check out the quiz after the video to test your understanding of the material: https://www.engvid.com/english-grammar-vocabulary-permanent-plurals/ TRANSCRIPT [Exhales] So hot today. You know what? I don't need pants for this video. Whew. Hey, everyone. I'm Alex. Thanks for clicking, and welcome to this lesson on "Nouns That Are Always Plural". So, if you know anything about count and noncount nouns, you know that count nouns can be singular or plural. "Cup", "cups"; "table", "tables"; "school", "schools". But there are some nouns... The list is not very long, but there are some nouns that always stay plural, that only have a plural form, and today I'm going to talk about them. Now, I know some of you might have some issues, you know, trying to memorize some of these things, but after today's lesson, I promise you: You're going to feel a lot better, a lot more confident, and you will be able to use these nouns correctly and confidently, which is really important, obviously, when you're learning and speaking a language. So... Whew. That's better. I feel the air now. I feel the air. So: "clothes", the word "clothes" itself is permanently plural. Right? So you can say: "I have too many clothes." Not: "too much clothes", because even though it only has one form, some people say: "Do I have too much clothes or too many clothes?" No, it's a plural, permanently plural, so you use "many" with the noun "clothes". Okay? So: "I have too many clothes." You can't say... Do not say: "I have two clothes", or: "to clothes-es-es", don't do it. Okay? So, just: "I have a lot of clothes. I need new clothes. I need some new clothes." That's okay. If you want to count clothes, there is a way, but you don't use the word "clothes", you use the word "clothing" and you use the quantifier expression of "articles of clothing". Okay? So: "There are 3 new articles of clothing in my closet." Otherwise: "clothes". "I have a lot of clothes, too many clothes." Okay? "I need new clothes." Continuing on, I've separated the second part of this video into three sections. One: leg stuff; two: other stuff; three: other other stuff. By the way, "leg stuff" is not a technical term at all, but stick with me. So, basically anything that you can, like, pull up on your legs, like the pants that I had and I no longer have, you can use in a permanent plural. Okay? So, what are some examples of leg stuff, things you can put on your legs? One, very general: "pants". Okay? You can say: "I need new pants." If you want to count pants or any of the other things I'm going to talk about related to clothes, you can also say: "I need a new pair". So, "a pair" means two. Now, again, legs have... Leg stuff, pants, jeans, etc., you have two legs and you put one and then the other, so this is a pair. So you can say: "I need a new pair of pants", or "a new pair of jeans", or "a new pair of shorts", for example. And you can also just say: "I need new pants", "new shorts", "new jeans", "new overalls". If you don't know what "overalls" are, I've drawn you a little picture. If you know Super Mario Brothers, Super Mario and Luigi wear overalls. A lot of, you know, people who work in factories have to wear clothes that cover their whole bodies from the legs all the way up, these are overalls. "Leggings", so leggings and "tights", these are very similar. When you think of leggings, think of tights. You might think of a Shakespearean theatre, a Shakespearean play where the actors wear really tight, tight, tight, thin layers of pants to cover their legs, and usually they cover your feet as well. Right? So, yeah, leggings, tights. And "shorts". Now, you might be thinking: "Well, Alex, what about that other thing that you put underneath your clothes that you're wearing?" that I'm wearing now, which is underwear. Okay? Underwear is an exception to this rule. We don't say, you know: "underwears" all the time, it's just "underwear" without a plural. Okay? But you still say: "two pairs of underwear", "three pairs of underwear", but just there's no "s" on the end of it. Okay? So, just for pronunciation, just repeat after me with these words, guys: "pants", "jeans", "overalls", "shorts", "tights", "leggings". All right, continuing on with this, you can also say with other stuff that: "You need new", or "You need a new pair of scissors." You use scissors to cut-right?-in school, or at home. Or: "a new pair of glasses". So, I have a pair of glasses here. […]

Sometimes using terms when you're learning a language can hurt more than it helps. This is possibly one of those times. But we need to refer to stuff somehow, right? In today's lesson, I go over Definite & Indefinite Articles in Spanish. If you don't know what those are, join the club. Even when I learned Spanish, since I learned on my own, I never knew what those were. Bottom line, it doesn't really matter, as long as you know how to use them. A definite article is simple "the". When you say "the cookie", everybody knows exactly which cookie is being talked about. Which cookie you want is definite. The opposite of that, an indefinite article is when you say "a cookie". Now, you are just saying give me "a" cookie among the many cookies. Which cookie you want is NOT definite. In the plural form, the indefinite article is basically "some" or "a few". I explain it all in the video and of course, give you the lowdown on the Spanish equivalents. So watch the video, do the Articles Worksheet available @ https://spanishdude.com/quickies/articles/ and leave me a comment or message me if you have any questions at all or need some clearing up.

In this class, you will learn the grammar rules about countable and uncountable nouns in English, including when to use "a" or "an", when to add an "s" at the end of a noun to make it plural, and when you should NOT add an "s". You will also learn about the difference between "much" and "many". Test yourself with the quiz at https://www.engvid.com/countable-uncountable-nouns-english-grammar/ Watch next: FIX YOUR GRAMMAR MISTAKES! -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XnrAM9QZ90U&list=PLaNNx1k0ao1u-x_nKdKNh7cKALzelzXjY&index=40 #engvid #LearnEnglish #EnglishGrammar TRANSCRIPT Hello. My name is Emma, and in today's video I'm going to teach you about countable and uncountable nouns. We can also call these "count nouns" and "non-count nouns". So, let's begin by first talking about: What is a noun? So, a noun is a word that is a person... It can be a person, so: "Emma", that's a noun; "teacher", that's a noun. It can be a place. "Russia" is a noun. "School" is a noun. It can be an animal; a dog. "Dog" is a noun. The word "cat" is a noun. It can also be a thing. This marker... The word "marker" is a noun. Okay? And it can also be a feeling. "Happiness" is a noun. So, a noun is a person, a place, a thing, an object, an animal. There are many things that are nouns. What a noun is not is it's not an action, like a verb; it's not a description, like an adjective; and it's not a preposition, like the word "on" or "off". Okay? A noun is, like I've said before, one of these things. So, in English... Well, actually, first let's do something. Let's underline the nouns just to make sure we have this concept. So, my first sentence is: "Canada is a large country." So let's underline the nouns, here. Well, "Canada" is a place, so we know "Canada" is a noun; "is" is a verb; "large" - this is a description; "country". "Country" is a place; this is also a noun. "My teacher is funny". "Teacher" is a person, so this is a noun; "funny" is a description, it's an adjective, it's not a noun. "The dog", so we have "dog" is an animal; "cats", "cats" are nouns; and we have the word, here, "friends". The word "friend" is also a noun. Okay? So, these are all nouns. So, in English, we have two types of nouns; we have countable nouns and we have uncountable nouns. It's important to know if a noun is countable or uncountable, because this is going to tell us if we use words, like: "a" in front of the word, and it will also tell us which words we cannot use with these words. So... And whether or not we need to add an "s" to the end of the noun if there's more than one. So, in this video, we are going to talk about countable nouns with many examples and uncountable nouns. So, let's look at countable nouns first. Okay, so we're going to start with countable nouns first. So, the first thing you need to know with a countable noun is when we have a countable noun, we need to put an "a" or an "an" in front of it. So, for example: "I have a dog. I have a computer. I have a lamp. I have a chair." So, notice I'm putting "a" in front of all of these. If the noun starts with a vowel sound, so for example: "a" is a vowel, "e", "i", "o", "u" - these are all vowels. And if it starts with a vowel sound, then we use "an". "I have an apple. I have an egg. I have an ant." Okay? So, we use this if the first... The first sound of the word is a vowel. So, the second thing you need to know is that with countable nouns a lot of the time we can count them. Okay? So we can often... A countable noun is something you can count, or... Usually it's something, or an animal, or, you know, a place - it's something you can count. So, for example: "I have a book." This is one book. "I have two books.", "I have three books." So, this... You can count books and it's a countable noun. "I have two chairs. I have five dresses." These are all countable nouns. When we have more than one countable noun, so for example, here we have one, here we have two. If we have more than one-so two, three, four, five, six-we need to add an "s". This shows us that there is more than one. And also notice that we don't need this in front of the noun anymore. So, we cannot say: "a books", because the "s" means there's more than one, so this would not match. Okay. What else do we need? So, we need an "s" or an "es" if we have more than one of this type of object or noun. Here's another example: "I have one sister.", "I have three sisters." So, notice here, you can count the number of sisters I have, and so I've added an "s". Now, we have some exceptions. For example, the word "moose". You can count the number of moose, but we never add an "s". It's... It's a strange exception. In English, you'll notice we have a lot of exceptions. We break rules a lot of times in English and that's okay. It's the same with "fish".
