Does no one know what "uncountable" means?Edit

This uncountable category is full of countable nouns. Not completely, but substantially.

  • Toyota: "One million defective Toyotas were recalled."
  • Twinkie: "Eighteen Twinkies later, he threw up, on not one, but two, Toyotas."

Perhaps this could be addressed somehow? Varlaam 05:15, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

All the entries that have at least one uncountable sense will appear in this category. So they are both uncountable and countable nouns. Nothing needs to be addressed. Thanks. JamesjiaoTC 05:19, 18 November 2010 (UTC)
