It looks as though the ERG is defining a mapping to a lexical type in
english.set that doesn't exist in the grammar english.grm.  Either you
are using files from different versions, or Dan forgot to update
english.set.    If you can find out what the generic_mass_count_noun
should be called (e.g. by dumping the lexicon from cheap) then you
should be able to fix it yourself in english.set.  There is (some)
documentation of the mappings at:
