'Mass nouns, Count nouns and Non-count nouns'

In Alex Barber (ed.), Encyclopedia of Language and Linguistics. Elsevier (2005)
Abstract
I present a high-level account of the semantical distinction between count nouns and non-count nouns (concrete non-count nouns sometimes being dubbed 'mass nouns'). The basic idea is that count nouns are semantically either singular (one-one semantic correlation) or plural (one-many semantic correlation) and non-count nouns (one-much semantic correlation) are neither.
