And in this video, I'm gonna talk to you about a very common speaking and spelling mistake in English. And we're going to focus on the words, 'work' and 'homework'. So the first thing you need to know, When the word 'work' is a verb, it can take an 's', if it's the third-person singular. So you will say, 'I work hard.' 'He works hard.' Okay? Very common, very normal verb, okay? So it takes an 'S' with the third-person singular. That's when 'work' is a verb. Now when you say, 'I have a lot of work.' 'work', in this case, is not a verb. It's a noun. And you have to know. When work is a noun, it does not take an 's', because there's no plural. You cannot say, 'I have a lot of works.' It's always singular, because it's an uncountable noun. Okay? So, 'I have a lot of work' Or you could say, 'I don't have much work.', Okay? Because it's uncountable. Now it can take a plural form, but only if it means not mental exertion like 'I have a lot of work.' But if it means a series of art pieces or literature pieces. And that's the only meaning of the word 'work' that allows you to use the plural form. So for example, you can say, 'The works of Picasso.' 'The works of Picasso' meaning 'The paintings of Picasso', okay? So art pieces, that's not the same as 'I have a lot of work.' Okay? Now, when you use the compound noun, 'homework', it's exactly the same as 'work' as an uncountable noun. It's uncountable, okay? So when you say, 'I have a lot of homeworks.', it's wrong. You cannot use the plural form. It's uncountable. You have to say, 'I have a lot of homework.' If you really want to emphasize the fact that you have many things to do at home, you can use another word and say, 'assignment'. You can say, 'I have many assignments.' It's the same as 'homework', but it is countable. Okay? So in a nutshell, 'work' as a verb, just does take an 's'. If it's the third-person singular. 'work' as a noun is uncountable, unless it means pieces of art or pieces of literature. And the word 'homework' is also uncountable. No plural form. Okay, guys. I really hope you understand that.
