Hi Cem,

Yes! there are numerous examples -- too many to list here.

Countable nouns refer to elements that can be counted singular or plural with definite or indefinite articles.

Uncountable nouns refer to quantities and are normally preceded by the partitive article.

eg. de l'eau, du sable.

Bonjour Cem,

As Jim mentioned there is a long list of them. Follow this link to a previous question: uncountable-nouns

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !

The question is about nouns which can be both countable and uncountable.

In English this applies to many foodstuffs, e.g. "some cheese" or "some cheeses" (i.e. some types of cheese). I think it's the same in French.

You can also say both "du café" and "un café".
