Q: knowledge/hearing they're uncountable but how come one has A before it and not the other?
a good knowledge
bad hearing
He has a good knowledge
he has had bad hearing in the left ear
A: @ttlearner I couldn’t respond to you on the other question so I’ll do it here: there’s no a before bad/good hearing because it’s being used as an adjective, something you can’t have more than 1 of where you can have a specific type of knowledge.

Bad hearing can also be replaced with “hard of hearing”

“He has had bad hearing for years”
“He’s been hard of hearing for years”

“He’s vey knowledgeable”
“He has a log of knowledge about cars”
Q: Can I use "a good few/a good many" with uncountable nouns?
A: No. Uncountable nouns use "little" and "much" instead of "few" and "many," but you can't say "a good little" or "a good much." You could say "A good amount" or "quite a lot of"
Q: Why are “luggage” and “baggage” uncountable noun?

Q: We use " little" for uncountable nouns then why do we use "a little girl" ?
A: "little" refers to an amount when we talk about uncountable nouns, but when we talk about countable nouns, it means "small in size"
"a little girl" = a small girl (countable)
"a little water" = a small amount of water (uncountable)
"a little car" = a small car (countable)
"a little rain" = a small amount of rain (uncountable)
Q: which are uncountable nouns?

1 tip
2 guideline
3 guidance
4 instruction
5 direction
6 advice
A: 3 & 6 — guidance & advice. The others are all countable. At least, by traditional usage in mainstream English. Actually 4 CAN be non-count WHEN it means “education or training,” as opposed to when it means “a direction or command about what to do” (which is countable). So 4 is a potential “trick” question, depending on context.
