Učenje angleščine je pogosto povezano z dilemo o podrobnostih, kot je naslednja: bo prav a few ali few?

  • There are _____ cookies in the jar, we mustn’t eat them anymore.
Kliknite za pravilen odgovor.
Pravilno:

  • There are few cookies in the jar, we mustn’t eat them anymore.

Few uporabimo, ko želimo izraziti količino: malo. Torej, da je nečesa zelo malo in ga skoraj ni več.

  • Steve has few friends.
  • She only had few minutes to get ready, she had to hurry.
  • There are _____ cookies in the jar, we can offer them to our friends.

Pravilno:

  • There are a few cookies in the jar, we can offer them to our friends.

A few uporabimo, ko želimo izraziti količino: nekaj. Torej, da nečesa ni veliko, a še vedno dovolj.

  • Steve has a few friends.
  • She had a few minutes to get ready, she wasn’t in a big hurry.

Oba izraza, few in a few, se uporabljata s števnimi samostalniki v množini. Oba uporabimo, ko želimo izraziti majhno količino nečesa.
