Common Nouns: Countable or Uncountable?

English speakers think most things can be counted.

books, people, ideas
But they believe some things cannot be counted,
or are too difficult to be counted:

water, hair, love
Some things are sometimes considered to be
countable and sometimes not, depending on the situation.
"Cheese is made from milk."
but
"There are a lot of different French cheeses."
