Grammar - Non Count Nouns

In English, there are two kinds of nouns: count nouns and non-count nouns. It is important to understand the difference between them, because they often use different articles, and non-count nouns usually have no plural.

Non Count Nouns are usually things which cannot be counted, such as rice or water. Non-count nouns have a singular form, but when they are indefinite, we either use the word "some", nothing at all or a set expression, for example:

A piece of paper / advice / cake / meat

Using the word piece is acceptable here, however, sometimes we want to use a more precise word.


A. The words given below in the list on the left are more precise than piece. Match each one with a word from the list on the right.
