Count nouns

Count nouns

Count nouns refer to individual people or things. They have a plural form, usually formed by adding s, though there are some irregular plurals (see Collins Cobuild English Grammar). When they are singular, they are usually used with a determiner, such as a, each, his, that, or the, or with a possessive such as John's. When they are plural, they may be used either without a determiner or with a determiner such as any, some, or the, or a number.
These nouns are labelled N-COUNT in the Collins Cobuild English Dictionary.
