Countable vs. Uncountable?
Definition 2 "A lawn" doesn't mention whether it's countable or not, I haven't ever heard it people say "grasses" to mean "lawns".
Also, definition 1 countable, do people refer to individual grass plants? Is there even such a thing? Certainly people might say "grasses" to refer to different types of grass.
- (Can this(+) etymology be sourced?) From Cockney rhyming slang: copper → grasshopper → grass.
- (Can this(+) etymology be sourced?) From "snake in the grass", via Virgil's Eclogues ("latet anguis in herba").
