Презентація "Nouns with double meaning and Plural nouns"

Про матеріал
На початку презентації здійнюється пригадування понять злічуваних та незлічуваних іменників. Наступний слайд вводить слово, яке зазвичай вживається як незлічуване, проте при переході в "злічувани" стан змінює й своє значення на прикладі сюжету з "Гаррі Поттера та таємної кімнати". Далі рекомендується проаналізувати речення з одним і тим же словом в різних "станах". Після чого проходить обговорення іменників, після яких вживається дієслово в множині.
