'amount/number':

http://wsu.edu/~brians/errors/amount.html

This is a vast subject. I will try to limit the number of words I expend on it so as not to use up too great an amount of space. The confusion between the two categories of words relating to amount and number is so pervasive that those of us who still distinguish between them constitute an endangered species; but if you want to avoid our ire, learn the difference. Amount words relate to quantities of things that are measured in bulk; number to things that can be counted.

The most common mistake of this kind is to refer to an "amount" of people instead of a "number" of people.
