Field-Specific Nouns

This lecture introduce on Field-Specific Nouns. Uncountable nouns are often turned into countable nouns by specialists in a particular field.They become part of the jargon of that specialism. Grass is usually uncountable but botanists and gardeners talk about grasses. Linguists sometimes talk about Englishes. Financiers refer to moneys or even monies. Teas may be used to mean types of tea. The distinction between concrete and abstract nouns is the most important one of all when you are analyzing linguistic data.
