What are uncountable nouns in English?
Uncountable nouns in English are normally either abstract or substances that are too big or small to count, like LOVE (abstract) or WATER (substance). This group of nouns also includes activities like TRAVEL or feelings like HAPPINESS.

These are nouns that show a connection or a relationship to something or someone else, e.g. ‘a WEEK’S holiday’ or ‘a DOCTOR’S surgery’.
