Linguistic LingField(s):  Morphology

Query:   I am interested if anyone know of a language in which there is an overt
marker for mass nouns (or in turn, an overt marker on count nouns, either
singular or plural, which is absent on mass nouns).

In other words, I'm wondering if any language systematically encodes the
mass/count distinction morphologically.

I will post a summary of all replies.
