Can anyone please tell me if expectation a countable or an uncountable noun in the following context? Because I think more is followed by plural countable nouns.
- He had more expectation of his sister Matilda grieving for him, even though her previous admiration had been tainted and diminished in recent months.
I found the above sentence sentence on the Internet. Shouldn't the word "expectation" have been in plural.
- We all have more expectation of death than of life.
This my own sentence. Is this correct?
- My father had no more expectation of hearing that I was alive ; but he received my letter a few days before he left London.
Does "no more" means "anymore" in the above context? I mean does it mean "My father did not had any expectation anymore of hearing that I was alive......"
- Adriana had no more expectation than Joshua did that her brother would allow Miranda to escape his protection.
I found this on the internet. I don't understand the meaning. Shouldn't the word "expectation " have been plural in the above sentence?
