    fault or faultS

    If you find fault with something or someone, you look for mistakes and complain about them.

    FAULT is a countable noun. Why is there no 's' behind the word 'fault' in the above sentence?

    'Fault' sometimes functions uncountably. It does in the phrase 'find fault with'.
