    tofu 本身是不可數的,可數的是他的單位,例如兩塊豆腐 two pieces of tofu,五盒豆腐 five blocks of tofu, 很多種豆腐 many kinds of tofu, 等等。如果有人說,你可以順道幫我買些豆腐回來嗎? could you please buy me some tofu on the way home? 那個 some 是一些的意思,未說明數量的用法,不表示豆腐可數。 如果要說我今晚吃了很多豆腐, i ate a lot of tofu tonight,那也只是說吃了很多「塊」(或任何其他形式)的豆腐,它仍是不可數的。我現在突然明白自己為什麼吃豆腐都吃一大堆了,原來它是不可數的,唉!

    豆腐是物質名詞﹐是不可數的﹐所以要用much/little 而非 many/few 之類的形容詞來表示多寡。
