There is an initial list in the book about articles:
address - -- idea - -- - month - -- scheme - -- year
effect - -- - -issue - -- plan - -- - -shock
election - -- method - -problem - -suggestion
hour - -- - -- munite - -remark - -- week

Does anybody know if there is an entire list?

As an optional part of the question I also would want to find entire list of uncount nouns (such as):
advice* behaviour equipment* furniture* hair* health homework* information* knowledge* machinery* money music* news* progress research* shopping traffic travel wealth weather
If I waded through these more or less then I would search the list of plural nouns.

The best thing is putting SQL-queries to dictionary database: SELECT uncount FROM nouns GROUP BY abstract (but again can't find).

Honestly I wouldn't want to see an entire list because it would be so huge. Good luck on your search though.
