Fewer vs Less

Kata "less" artinya sedikit dan digunakan untuk benda tunggal seperti (less time); sedangkan "fewer" artinya sedikit dan digunakan untuk benda jamak seperti (fewer mice).

  • There is less cheese on this plate. (cheese - singular)
  • There are fewer pieces of cheese on this plate. (pieces - plural)



Seperti "less", kata "amount" dan "quantity" digunakan untuk kata benda tunggal dan kata "number" digunakan untuk benda jamak.

  • A large number of people.
  • At that stage, a huge amount of sugar and a vast quantity of milk are poured in and stirred. Shortly afterwards, a seemingly infinite number of chocolates appear on the conveyer belt.
