Please kindly help me understand the rules under which zero articles are used before the nouns appearing to be countable in these examples:
As will be explained in [para] 2.3, several different types of company can be registered. The contents of the application for registration depend on the type of company being registered.
A claim for misrepresentation may sometimes be a claim for breach of contract.
I had a chance to read this response (Can a singular noun follows zero-article?), which is very helpful and interesting. I wish to confirm whether my understanding is correct that 'type of company' is a compound phrase and 'a' before 'company' is redundant (my understanding is based on that response). Does this apply to 'breach of [a] contract'? Or does 'contract' have an uncountable meaning there (as the branch of law)?
Further, ‘misrepresentation’ and ‘breach’ seem to have the same meaning when used countably or uncountably (based on dictionaries). If this is so, in what contexts are the words like these used countably and uncountably? How can I resolve this if I wish to use them in a particular context?
