Countable & Uncountable Nouns

Noun: Two types (in another classification)

Countable Noun
गणनीय संज्ञा जिन्हें गिना जा सकता है।
That can be counted. Example: Pen, Boy, Book, Hair, Star, Girl, Man, Cow, City, Paper etc.
Uncountable Noun
अगणनीय संज्ञा जिन्हें गिना नहीं जा सकता।
That can’t be counted Example: Milk, Sugar, Honesty, Delhi, Money, Love, Hate etc.

आप सोच रहे होंगे कि ‘Hair’ और ‘Star’ तो अनगिनत होते हैं फिर इन्हें Countable Noun क्यों कहा गया। देखिए, अनगिनत इसलिए कहते हैं क्योंकि बहुत अधिक होते हैं, गिनना मुश्किल है पर असम्भव तो नहीं है ना। गिन तो सकते ही हैं। दूसरी बात हमने ‘Money’ को Uncountable Noun कहा है जबकि पैसे को हम गिन सकते हैं। पर ध्यान दीजिए कि अंग्रेज़ी के इस शब्द ‘Money’ को हम 1 money, 2 money, 3 money आदि नहीं कह सकते इसलिए इसे Uncountable माना जाता है।

You must be thinking that ‘Hair’ and ‘Star’ are not possible to count. In fact, counting them is difficult because they are huge in numbers but it’s not impossible to count them; we can count them like 1 star, 2 stars, 3 stars, 1 hair, 2 hairs, 3 hairs etc. That’s why they are called countable nouns. Secondly, ‘Money’ is an English word which is considered to be an uncountable noun because we can’t say “I have 1 money, 2 money, 3 money etc” so can’t count it in numbers.
