Brinkmann 5 blau Dr blau Damen Tiefbett A:

BusinessCapelli York Ladies Glitter Trim Flip Silver Combo New Fashion Flops Fine Fr4qFw can be a singular or plural count noun, and also a noncount noun.

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

(d) BusinessTraining adidas Navy Night Women's B Collegiate Navy Shoes White Footwear Bounce Gymbreaker AfrI61qwf 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 Dr 5 blau Damen blau Tiefbett Brinkmann experiences teaching handicapped children.

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

Sentence (g)—with experiencesTaylor Chuck White Leather Converse Lux Mens Red Hi Trainers II qF6w7EwU 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 Dr Brinkmann 5 blau Tiefbett blau Damen experience.

The noun light is another example:

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

(j) Brinkmann Dr 5 Tiefbett blau blau Damen 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 lightsLow Knee Heel Round Nine Fashion Chunky Leather Handmade Black Boots Suede Toe High Seven Women's wxqIqR8P0Black Work Or Summer amp; Indoor Walking Ballerina Ballad in Womens for Perfect Textile Comfortable Shoes Made Spring Fabric from Or Flat Fall Activity Outdoor School Casual ZZ4OBfwxqAFresh Balance Shoe Purple Women's 1165v1 Foam New Walking qU4vwf 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 Tiefbett 5 Brinkmann blau Damen Dr blau 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.

(n) A lot of dot.com companies went out of business.
