>Mistake2Why wrong:  “Publicity” is non-count or mass noun.  Mass nouns can’t be plural or take an indefinite article (a or an means one, which is a number).

Correct it: With mass nouns, don’t use indefinite articles (a publicity) or make them plural (publicities). Say “That was really good publicity.”
