If we're talking about different kinds of something, then we pluralize it. For example, "cheese" is not countable. However, if we're talking about cheddar, swiss and gouda, then we say that there are several cheeses.

Expertise

I don`t know English. I am English. I eat words for dinner, inject allusions for relaxation, peruse dictionaries for fun and write to respire. The category is misleading because I believe I will be of equal help to native or non-native speakers alike. I confess I am not an expert in grammar. But, if you are looking to describe a particular event, situation, place or thing and can`t find the right word, phrase, theme or context for it I will be able to answer you. I am a wordsmith with a 24-hour business for the writers. After overcoming the language barrier and exhausting all the resources, when you arrive at the cul-de-sac of language I will lend you the rope ladderˇK

Experience

I am hypergraphic; I write poems, lyrics, stories or keep myself busy in anything involving linguistics. I speak five languags fluently and currently learning three more.
