When do we use uncountable comment and countable comments?
I looked up in a dictionary, comment take countable and uncountable forms.
1. It was fair comment.
2. Do you have any comments?
Please enlighten me.
"Fair comment" means roughly " that was a reasonable criticism to make".
A comment is one thing we say about somebody or something.
So if I make one critical statement, you can refer to it as 'fair comment' or 'a fair comment'. If I make two or more critical comments, you can say'fair comment', but not 'a fair comment'.
That is the theory. In practice, we don't often use 'a fair comment', and we usually restrict 'fair comment' to fairly short criticism.
