    Hello everybody;
    I have doubts with the following expressions attending to what should follow them, that is, countable or uncountable words, Could anybody help me?

    Countable: a lot of / a large number of / plenty of
    Uncountable: a lot of / plenty of / a great deal of / a large amount of

    You might occasionally hear "a great deal of" before a countable noun, but I wouldn't use it myself.
