Singular
liquid

Plural
countable and uncountable; plural liquids

liquid (countable and uncountable; plural liquids)

  1. (physics) A substance that is flowing, and keeping no shape, such as water; a substance of which the molecules, while not tending to separate from one another like those of a gas, readily change their relative position, and which therefore retains no definite shape, except that determined by the containing receptacle; an inelastic fluid.
    A liquid can freeze to become a solid or evaporate into a gas.
  2. (phonetics) An l or r sound.

The differentiation of a liquid as an incompressible fluid is not strictly correct, experiment having shown that liquids are compressible to a very limited extend. See fluid.
