Article or no article?
In this lesson we look at many nouns which are both countable and uncountable. Uncountable nouns (used in a general sense) have no article, whereas countable nouns MUST have an article. Here are some examples of words being used as countable and uncountable nouns. War is a racket. War is hell. All is fair in love and war There was a war in northern Europe. The argument was a war of words. The party was a disaster. 50 people perished in the disaster Disaster struck. This would spell disaster for the company. I did it by accident! It was an accident! I saw a terrible accident on the way to work. You can find more lessons on my website. https://www.skype-lessons.com/ Please use a good learners dictionary to find out if the word can be both countable and uncountable.

Grammar: Using THE with common and abstract nouns
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."

"A" is used before consonants and "an" - before vowels. We use "the" if it's clear for a listener what thing or person we talk about. We don't use an article with the names of cities or countries. But we say the USA. (We use "the" with the names of countries which have the words like states, republic, kingdom, or union) New York is a city. (a + noun) New York is big.(adjective) New York is a big city. (a + adjective + noun) He has an umbrella. (an + noun which starts with the vowel "u") The umbrella is blue.

Hello Friends, In this video we will learn about ABSTRACT NOUNS this is exactly opposite of the CONCRETE NOUNS. ABSTRACT NOUN is the name of a thing we cannot SEE or TOUCH. We can only feel it. An Abstract Noun is a type of noun that refers to something with which a person cannot physically interact. A noun is a person, place or thing. However, in many cases the "Thing" might be an intangible concept- which mean it is an abstract form of noun. A noun that is abstract, concept, idea, experience, state of being, trait, quality, feeling or other entity .

INDEX: 0:01 Introduction 1:22 Title 1:32 #1 There are different names for nouns we can’t count. 2:06 #2 Uncountable nouns take a singular verb. 2:49 #3 Some nouns have both an uncountable and countable meaning. 4:33 #4 Uncountable nouns usually have a general or abstract meaning. Countable nouns are more specific (more concrete). 7:01 #5 One way to help us identify uncountable nouns is to learn the common categories they belong to. 9:27 #6 We can use quantifying words and phrases to make uncountable nouns countable. 11:52 #7 Don’t confuse uncountable nouns with collective nouns.

Transcript: Hi there and welcome back to our series of lessons on the parts of speech My name is Ganesh and this lesson is all about nouns. In this lesson we will learn about the different kinds of nouns there are in English and we will also look at some rules to keep in mind when using them. We will first talk about concrete and abstract nouns, then we'll look at common and proper nouns which are a very important area. Then we'll discuss the very interesting collective nouns and finally we'll turn to the most important topic relating to nouns, and that is countable and uncountable nouns. Before we start just remember - for any questions let me know in the comments section below and I'll talk to you there. OK so first of all what is a noun? I'm sure you know the answer to this - A noun is just the name of a person, place, animal, thing, feeling or idea. For example in this sentence "Graham likes to go to the zoo and see the animals." Here there are three nouns - can you identify all of them? The nouns are Graham - a person, zoo - a place and animals. Nouns can also be things like watch, T-shirt etc. And all of these - people, places, animals and things are physical - that means we can see them and we can touch them. So they are called concrete nouns - that means they have a real physical existence. So what are abstract nouns? Abstract nouns are nouns that don't have physical existence. That means we cannot touch them or see them, and these are ideas and feelings. Now in this sentence Honesty is the best policy. It's a very popular proverb in English Have you heard of that? In that sentence honesty and policy are both nouns but they are abstract nouns. And this next example Love is a powerful emotion. Love is the name of a feeling like anger, happiness or sorrow. And love is a noun. Emotion is also a noun. OK let's now talk about common and proper nouns. Do you know what common and proper nouns are? A common noun is a general noun and a proper noun is the name given to a specific individual. For example in this chart all the nouns on the left are common nouns and all the nouns on the right are proper nouns. For example man is a common noun because it can mean any man but Ganesh is the name of one man - one individual, which in this case is me of course. So Ganesh is a proper noun. Woman, in the same way, is a common noun - it could be any woman but Allison is the name of an individual, so a proper noun. In the next two, city and country are common nouns but Hamburg and China are the names of one city and one country, so proper nouns. OK now let me ask you a question at this point - do you notice something about the proper nouns? You should be noticing that they're all written with a capital first letter. And that is actually a rule in English - proper nouns are always written with a capital first letter. With university, for example, when we talk about universities in general we use it as a common noun so the whole word is written in lower case - that means in small letters. But when we're talking about a specific university like the University of Chicago, notice that both the 'U' in University and the 'C' in Chicago are capitals. That's because it's a proper noun that refers to one specific university. OK there are more examples on the screen but I want you to focus on the last two - day and month. With the days of the week - Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, we always write them with the first letter capitalized because they are proper nouns.
