Topic: Non countable vs. countable

1. It's catastrophe.
2. It's a catastrophe.

What is the difference in meaning between the two, and when do you use the first not the second?

Thank you.

Not an Origami heart. I mean the heart in your body, and the shape of the heart in your body that pumps blood.

" I am going to make (a or the heart) with paper?

Thank you.

Those are funny. Then, how to say if you want to make an organ heart ?

"I am going to make an organ heart out of paper."?

Thank you everyone.

The original sentence contains "the" in front of compressive reinforment. Because I am so so so confused with this "the" thing...I was trying to solve the puzzle of this "the"

You could make a heart, any heart, a small heart, a large heart, a romantic heart, or a heart that looks like the organ.

Or, given a choice between making a heart, and a star, you choose to make the heart. The heart is specific because it is the only one.


Thank you.

So, if someone says "I am going to make the heart" abruptly, then you would have no possibility of knowing if it is the heart in your body, or a heart in your body(?), or a red heart, is that what you mean? The person said the, not a, with no context, but still this "the" wouldn't automatically point to your organ, is that what you mean?

Whichever you mean, it would be "a heart", not "the heart"


Thank you.

Then can you tell me what you mean by a heart and the heart? I don't understand what you are referring to.

As with tensile longitudinal reinforcing, compressive reinforcement does not resist shear stress.

Is the sentence correct? Or is it missing anything?
Topic: A wash
Posted: Monday, July 17, 2017 3:51:02 PM
What does each sentence mean? Have I understood them correctly?

A: there is a car wash / there is a wash
1. There is a building for washing cars

B: you've got a wash to do
1. You have a dirty car to wash. So please go, wash it

I am going to make the heart.

What does this mean?

1. You will make a shape that represents your organ that pumps blood.
2. You will make a shape that represents the love sign.
