Good morning (It's morning in my country). Do abstract nouns belong to uncountable nouns? Thank you.

An abstract noun can be either a countable noun or uncountable noun.
Oh, thank you. That relieves me since in many sentences that I read there are some of them written in plural form.

What do you think about the words "opinion", strength", "weakness" and "advice"? I think they are abstract nouns but I find sometimes they are written in plural form. And, in my opinion, it makes sense, for instance: in discussion text, it's obvious that there are two opinions (the pro and the contra); and when we want to say that someone has more than one strength and weakness in their personality.
Hi,

Yes, you are right about all that.

Thank you, Clive, but there are two people (one of them is an English teacher) who say that "advice" can't be written in plural form.

Hi,

They are right, as someone else has now pointed out. I was careless in reading your list of words.

My apologies.
