Things Women Love About Men

Crowning glory

Nothing like a funky haircut! A good hairstyle can give you a different look altogether. What are you waiting for? Get that stunner look so you can impress that chick you have been eyeing.

Few is used with countable nouns, and little is used with uncountable nouns:
  • I have a little money.

    (money = uncountable)
  • I have a few dollars.

    (dollars = countable)
  • There's little entertainment in this town.

    (entertainment = uncountable)
  • There are few nightclubs in this town.

    (nightclubs = countable)
  • ne important detail:
  • little is used with a negative connotation ("not much")
  • a little is used when it's a positive connotation ("better than nothing!")

    It's the same with "few" and "a few":
  • He's not very popular. He has few friends. or ( a bad thing)
  • He has a few friends that he hangs out with all the time. or ( a good thing)
  • She's not qualified for the job because she has little experience in this area. (= a bad thing)
  • She could do this job; she has a little experience in this area. or ( a good thing)

    Fewer and less are the comparative forms:

    Base Form Comparative Superlative

    few fewer fewest

    little less least

  • If I made 8 mistakes on the test, John made 5 mistakes, and Harriet only made 2 mistakes, then: I made few mistakes on the test, but John made fewer mistakes than me, and Harriet made the fewest mistakes.
  • If I have $20, John has $12, and Harriet has only $3, then: I have little money, John has less money than me, and Harriet has the least money out of all of us.
  • ne very common MISTAKE in the United States is signs in supermarkets that say "Ten items or less" for the express checkout lanes. The correct way is "Ten items or fewer" - because the word "items" is countable!
