Countable & uncountable nouns
The next slides will inform you  about countable and uncountable nouns. In Dutch these are called: "telbare- en ontelbare zelfstandige naamwoorden".

Countable nouns
You can say a number before these nouns. There is a plural form: one banana, two bananas, one orange, three oranges. You can use a/an: a banana, an orange.

Uncountable nouns
You can’t say a number or a/an before these nouns.
There is no plural form: five pastas, three breads.

Slide 11 - Slide

A or an?
Het lidwoord “een” is in het Engels “a’ of “an”. Je gebruikt “a” als het woord erna begint met een medeklinker (b, c, d, etc) en “an” als het woord erna begint met een klinker (a, e, i, etc).

Maar let op!! Het gaat erom hoe je het woord dat volgt op “a” of “an” uitspreekt en niet hoe je het schrijft!

Slide 12 - Slide

A or an?
Het kan dus zijn dat je een woord schrijft met een medeklinker, maar uitspreekt als een klinker.
Bijvoorbeeld: “an honest man” ipv “a honest man”, want je spreekt de “h” niet uit. Je zegt: [onest]. Andersom komt het ook voor. Je zegt “a one-armed man” en niet “an one-armed man, omdat je “one” uitspreekt als [wan].
