    enough + singular noun


    Use of enough

    enough - Definition from Longman English Dictionary Online

    Nouns used with enough must be plural or uncountable, never singular

    • There aren't enough books (NOT enough book).

    Is there any exception in this usage? I have seen some sentences in which a singular noun has been used with enough.

    There is enough room for everbody to sit down.
    There is not enough room to swing a cat.

    Re: enough + singular noun

    'Room' is uncountable in that sense.
