I found that "firework" is countable noun but sometimes it may be uncountable. So, now I'm wondering how to use this word.

would you say:

I've never seen so many fireworks

or

I've never seen so much fireworks

??

  • Only "many" is possible here, where "fireworks" is being used a count noun. – BillJ Jan 29 '17 at 9:18

Well fireworks can have two different meanings:

I've never seen so many fireworks

You're watching a pyrotechnic display.

I've never seen so much fireworks.

You're observing outbursts of anger.

    Even if using "fireworks" figuratively, I would still say "many" ... although I'd probably say "a lot of fireworks" instead. I'm not sure how I feel about "much fireworks" -- I'd probably interpret it as a doge meme. – Andrew Jan 29 '17 at 6:56
