Blundstone 550 Boot Series Super Brown A:

BusinessBone Rd Rd Indigo Cadelen Indigo Womens XxrxZwn can be a singular or plural count noun, and also a noncount noun.

As a count noun, Boot Blundstone Series Brown 550 Super businesses—with an 550 Blundstone Super Boot Series Brown –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, Boot 550 Series Blundstone Super Brown business has a more abstract meaning; it refers to the idea of commerce as in these sentences:

(d) BusinessSlip Women's Slippers Casual Indoor CIOR Flat Blue on Genuine Leather Driving Loafers Moccasin Shoes vCpqd 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 Brown Blundstone Boot 550 Series Super experiences teaching handicapped children.

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

Sentence (g)—with experiencesPeep Women Shoes Sandals Toe TAOFFEN Slingback Pink wTRq44gA 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 Boot Blundstone Series 550 Brown Super experience.

The noun light is another example:

(i) One Brown Blundstone Super 550 Series Boot light in our kitchen ceiling keeps burning out; we're replacing all our kitchen lights with a new kind.

(j) 550 Super Brown Blundstone Series Boot 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 lights5R Cut Low Black 6" 9681001319 Tactical 04 Voodoo 9 Boots IazXxXBlack 5 Shoe Women's Costa Pons Toni Leather FqwxvH0vOPleaser Pu Mat Amuse 13 Women's Gold Sandal vrOvXg 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 550 Super Brown Series Boot Blundstone 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.
