Well, in this video, we're going to be focusing on quantifiers for only count nouns and only non count nouns.
Take a look at all of these quantifiers.
Which of these quantifiers can be used with count nouns? 
An example of a count noun is bicycles.
Well, you would be left with these. 
Many, a couple of, a few, several, and a number of.
Let's put these words into two categories, large quantities and small quantities.
Many is the most commonly used for large quantities, while a few, a couple of, a number of, which means the same as several are the most common.
A number of, can actually be used for both quantities. If you say a small number of, well that means small quantities, and if you say a great number of or a large number of, then of course, you mean large quantities.
Other quantifiers for only count nouns include each and every.
And both refer to singular nouns as members of a group.
Each emphasizes the individual, often focusing on differences.
Here's some examples. 
Each book tells a very different story. 
Each cover is a different color.
Every, focuses on the group and similarities in the group.
Every book is enjoyable to read.
Every book has a hard leather cover.
Now let's take a look at these words again. 
Which of these quantifiers can be used with non-count nouns? 
An example of a non-count noun is sand. 
Well, here we are. 
Much, a bit of, a large amount of, a little, a great deal of.
Now lets put these into categories as well.
Categories for only non-count nouns. 
Large quantities and small quantities. 
For large quantities you can use much,
a great deal of and a large amount of. 
And for small quantities a little, a bit of, or even a little bit of, and then of course, a small amount of.
Let's try a quick exercise. 
Fill in the blank with a quantifier.
Make sure to look at the pictures, and remember glass is a count noun.
Well, here's the answer.
A couple of the glasses had wine in them, but many of the glasses were empty.
Let's try another one. 
Fill in the blank with a quantifier. 
And remember, heat is a noncount noun.
Did you get this right?
You would say a candle can provide a little bit of heat, but a campfire can provide a great deal of heat. 
Great job. 
Let's do one more.
Relying on this picture we would say, this store carries a large amount of jewelry.
Jewelry remember is non count noun.
Manhattan is famous for having a great number of towers.
Towers is a count noun.
All right. 
I think we're ready to move on to part four. 
In part four, we will be discussing common mistakes using quantifiers.
See you soon.
