The words for drinks are usually innumerable: coffee is more expensive than tea. Countless nouns are always treated as singular when it comes to a verb-subject chord: you can use „them“ with nouns, if there is only one thing or no one. Some names can be counted when we talk about a particular species or different species. Chianti is an Italian wine. (A kind of Italian wine) The use of plastics has increased sharply. (Using different types of plastics) These names have plurals, but they take a singular verb. Zedco posted a loss of $35 million last year. Management (1) is aware that it has made mistakes. The press (2) printed out all the stories and articles that criticize the company.
The Board of Directors of Zedco (3) knows that it now has to make difficult decisions. Of course, employees (4) are concerned about their jobs and (5) want/want a meeting with management as soon as possible. But Chief Executive Barry Douglas says things aren`t that bad. He said the company still has (6) a great future ahead of it. It is important to understand that although some nour bite is largely decoucable, it can also have fairly frequent use (and vice versa). Take, for example, the word beer. It is basically unnamed like all liquids and substances.

Of course, there are exceptions – here are some examples of countless names. Can I have water? Do you want us to sit on the grass? The money is pretty safe. I love music. Would you like some butter? A lot and a little go with countless subtantives.
I don`t drink a lot of wine. There was only a little bread left. Some names have only a plural form (with s) and adopt a plural verb. The clothes were in the dryer, it wasn`t the dress… All the myriad names associated with clothing are thousands of thousands of people. They cannot be used in the singular form or with numbers. You can`t say, for example, shorts or two shorts.
