"And at last a see the light, and it's like the fog has lifted" Can't help but sing the song in my mind!

Is light should be uncountable?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/phb2013

"Light" can be countable or uncountable depending on context. Take the sentence "I see the light". If "light" refers to daylight, sunlight or moonlight, it is uncountable. If it refers to a street light, or a stop light, it is countable. I can't think of any example where the plural "lights" would be uncountable.

Doet "zien de licht" er hetzelfde bijbetekenis in Nederlands als in Engels hebben? Dat is, "te ken," of "te begrijpen"? Of zelfs, "te beginnen te geloven"?

Nope, something like that would be something like "Nu valt het kwartje" or "Nu gaat er een belletje rinkelen".

Is "nu valt het kwartje" the equivalent of "now the penny drops"? :-)
