    Smile Is the word "work' considered as a countable or uncountable noun?

    Hello

    Is the word "work' considered as a countable or uncountable noun?

    For example, which one of the following sentences are correct?

    1) I have an urgent work.

    2) I have urgent work.

    Thanks

    In this context, it's uncountable, so it's "I have [some] urgent work [to do]".

    However, "work" can be a countable noun. For example, "the works of Shakespeare".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
