    • We use some and any with uncountable nouns (always singular, like time, water, money ) and countable nouns in plural (like CDs , apples , shoes …).
    • So, these sentences are all wrong:
    • *I’ve got a CDs.
    • *You’ve got an apples.
    • *He’s got a shoes.
  • 2. Some
    • We use some in affirmative sentences, with the meaning: una mica de, uns/es, alguns/es . It is not always translated.
    • I’ve got some time.
