    countable and uncountable nouns

    can the uncountable noun "money" be also used as "monies"? and how
    ?

    Money is generally uncountable. For example: I have some money, but not much.

    However, when we talk about money we sometimes have different types: taxes, investments, loans, borrowings, etc. When we talk collectively about money of different types or of different sources money is treated as countable. E.g. The Treasurer detailed the monies accured from abroad in the annual report.

    The plural is used in technical and legal language mostly.
