Mensagem:  Well, I kind of expected to get this explanation about enormous as being uncountable, but how about honor, admiration and the like? We say, I have an admiration for her/ It´s an honor to take part in this forum....

There are some nouns in  English that appear to be singular but are actually plural because they refer to several people.  A common example of this is "police".
Good point, Dale! I haven´t thought about this one. But, how can i possibly know. Is there a way? I find this a bit hard. If I were writing that article, I´d surely use HAS, in lieu of HAVE.

Thanks, Fran for the useful help too!!!!
