This article discusses how awareness is used as a collective term in English, in the same way that it has been used in Norwegian. In many situations, it would be more appropriate to use other and more nuanced words to describe awareness, such as attention and consciousness. The use of a more comprehensive vocabulary to describe awareness leads to an elaboration of the awareness-attention-consciousness process and is linked to an article by Bloom (2019) on the awareness-consciousness continuum.
