Sentence: There is a contradiction between his word and behavior.

Why did they use 'a' before 'contradiction,' when you cannot count it.

Thank you in advance.

    Please tell us where you found this sentence, Hwacha.

    Also, why do you think "contradiction" is uncountable?

    I made the sentence slightly revising one of the examples provided on the website.
    Ah.. now I see, it is countable.. right, thanks.
