non count nouns made plural
I was wondering why 'happinesses' and 'gratitude' can be made plural. Please explain!
I guess they can be used for emphatic purposes.. (I am not quite sure) to me i have never come across this...
I wouldn't use either in the plural.

Well, it's rare but I've heard both 'gratitudes' and 'happinesses':

In the above context both are count nouns.
All the best, :D
