: OK, granted, the difference between the uncountable and countable senses is a minor one (same spelling, for example), but that mention was in anticipation of pages linking to this one with both senses. Just trying to be precise. The link on the words "countable noun" is for reference, in case people don't know what the term means; and the mention of "countable noun" in the first place is to emphasize the difference in the senses I'm referring to. I did something similar at [[Belief]], except I didn't link the words "countable noun". - [[User:Dcljr|dcljr]] 20:48, 11 August 2007 (CDT)

:: Ah. I think I see what you mean: the difference between "exegesis" (the activity) and "'''an''' exegesis" (a particular text). Just MHO, but I think the difference is clear enough from having "an" in bold, and adding "(countable noun)" just causes confusion. The same goes for "belief" (and "history", if it came to that). --[[User:Arensb|Arensb]] 11:34, 13 August 2007 (CDT)

::: Oh, fine. Be that way. <g> I've simplified it to just underlining the "An". Will do the same with [[belief]]. - [[User:Dcljr|dcljr]] 11:39, 13 August 2007 (CDT)
