In [books.google.de/books?id=0lkSAAAAIAAJ (google preview)] it's "zählbare [Wörter, Nomen or Substantive] (countables, thing-words) und die nicht zählbaren (uncountables)". Does countable (pl. countables; = count noun, countable noun) exist? -IP, 23:17, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
- Yes, there does exist such a noun in contemporary English usage. You can find examples with a search of the web. I doubt that this usage is considered good English style, but it is readily understandable. — Aetheling (talk) 23:24, 24 April 2017 (UTC)
I found this entry to have a badly garbled explanation of the mathematical senses of this word. I have tried to repair these parts, and to render them somewhat more comprehensible to those without the requisite mathematics. I hope I have succeeded. If not, I am open to suggestions, questions, and criticism. I consider this to be an important word, even though it is somewhat technical, so let us try to get it right! — Aetheling (talk) 23:31, 24 April 2017 (UTC)
