I read the following sentence somewhere:
It was a fun but hard project.
I don't understand, why the indefinite article "a" was used there! The noun "fun" is uncountable, isn't it?
Try looking at it this way, Lenka,
EX: It was a fun [project], but a hard project.
The first noun, [project], has been omitted for the sake of efficiency.
All the best.
Why is "fun" used instead of "funny", then? Word "fun" isn't an adjective, is it?

Funny can mean comical (causing laughter) or strange.
