    Thumbs down countable or not?

    Is the word "advice" countable or uncountable? Is there a way to find out whether a word is countable or not?

    Default Re: countable or not?

    we use "advice" as an uncountable noun.

    Example A: I need your advice.
    Example B: I need a piece of advice from you.

    the phrase "a piece of" is useful with uncountable nouns such as "a piece of information" and "a piece of news."
