    most, most of, most of the

    Hello, dear forum users!

    most water
    most of water
    most of the water


    I know that ''most water'' is used to speak about all water in general, ''most of the water'' - about specific (water at my home, for example), but what is the rule for using ''most of water''?

    Please give us some full sentences to consider.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    The first refers to all water.
    The second is incorrect. If you add 'the', it means much the same as the first.
    The third is fine.

    Re: most, most of, most of the

    I can't think of a sentence where the words most of water​ could appear in that order.
    I am not a teacher.
