Countable Nouns

As their name suggests, countable nouns are those that refer to something that can be
counted. For example, we can count cars:

one car, two cars, three cars…

Even if the number might be extraordinarily high (like counting all the stars in the sky),
countable nouns can be individually counted.

Some more examples of countable nouns:

car, man, bottle, house, key, idea, accident
dog, cat, animal, man, person
cup, plate, fork
table, chair, suitcase, bag,


 nouns may be countable.
