Thread: inconveniences

  1. Unregistered


    i saw this sentence

    I really dont want to be an inconvenience
    i think this is correct. so inconvenience is countable?

    if so, then i can say,

    we really don't wan to be inconveniences

    this is correct?

    how about these sentences?

    i hope i didn't cause any inconveniences
    i hope i didn't cause any inconvenience

    Re: inconveniences

    'Inconvenience' is usually uncountable, but we do say 'be an inconvenience'. However, I would say 'we really don't want to be an inconvenience'. In the last case, use 'any inconvenience'
