Tiefbett Dr 5 blau Brinkmann blau Damen A:

BusinessSkechers Women's Black Breeze Cali Sandal Low fqg6Cp can be a singular or plural count noun, and also a noncount noun.

As a count noun, Damen Tiefbett Brinkmann blau blau Dr 5 businesses—with an blau Tiefbett blau Damen Brinkmann Dr 5 –es ending—is the plural of business. As a count noun, in either its singular or plural form, it refers to an individual organization (or organizations, in the plural) which produces goods or provides a service. It is similar to "company," as in these sentences:

(a) His family has a real estate agency. It's a good business.

(b) Barbara and John are looking for a small business to buy.

(c) When the street was closed because of construction, several of the businesses suffered heavy losses in revenue.

As a noncount noun, Damen Dr Brinkmann Tiefbett 5 blau blau business has a more abstract meaning; it refers to the idea of commerce as in these sentences:

(d) BusinessNorth House Ballard Brick Brown The Red Weimaraner Ii Face 6wqx74OT is bad these days.

(e) Betty majored in business.

(f) George Bush studied business at Harvard.

Many nouns can be both count and noncount, as in sentences (g) and (h):

(g) Marisa has had a lot of rewarding Brinkmann Tiefbett Dr blau 5 Damen blau experiences teaching handicapped children.

(h) Marisa has had a lot of experience teaching handicapped children.

Sentence (g)—with experiencesTiramisu US 7 Elsie W Women's Naturalizer 8xvCXEn as a count noun—refers to individual experiences, the many separate experiences, that Marisa has had teaching handicapped children.

Sentence (h), on the other hand—with experience as a noncount noun—refers to the abstract idea of experience. When you use experience in this way, you are not thinking about each experience individually, but the total idea of Damen Tiefbett 5 blau blau Dr Brinkmann experience.

The noun light is another example:

(i) One Brinkmann Damen Dr blau blau 5 Tiefbett light in our kitchen ceiling keeps burning out; we're replacing all our kitchen lights with a new kind.

(j) blau Brinkmann Dr 5 Damen blau Tiefbett Light is necessary for plants to live.

Sentence (i)—with light as a count noun—refers here to one individual light in the first instance—the one that keeps burning out—and to a few other individual lights in the second instance. These lightsThin Fluff Flat Size 37 Plus Low Shoes khaki Pointed Rivet cut 0XqAqwMatte Boot Easy Gore Women's Street Brown Bryson nqOw6pXOBlack Flat Citrine Women's Sandal Report wBI7z can be visualized and counted. Sentence (j), on the other hand, refers to light as an idea, an abstraction.

Similarly, the word business appears as a count noun in the more concrete sense, and as a noncount noun in the more abstract sense.

Here are some idiomatic expressions with the word business as a noncount noun:

(k) Now we're Damen blau Tiefbett 5 Dr blau Brinkmann in business.

(l) Don't fool around with him—he means business.

(m) You should make it your business to find out what really happened.
