Few / Little - A Few / A Little

Few or Little


We use few before plural nouns and little before singular uncountable nouns. They both mean that the amount we are talking about is not a lot,

e.g.

• I'm only taking a few things with me on this trip: a couple of T shirts and a pair of trousers.
• There's a little milk in the fridge. Can you buy some more?

Few and little (without the indefinite article 'a') are more negative in meaning. They express the idea 'not as many/much as I would like'.



A Few or A Little


A few and a little (with the indefinite article 'a') are similar in meaning to 'some'. They express quite a positive idea.
Few and little (without the indefinite article 'a') are more negative in meaning. They express the idea 'not as many/much as I would like'.

Compare these two sentences:

• We studied the Present Perfect yesterday in our English class; few students understood it. (Not many students understood and that's a problem.)
