[hippo]: (asking because I'm sure you said before about learning English) Did you know there are 2 different words for smaller quantities in English? They are "less" and "fewer". Fewer applies to a number of discrete things like days.
Eily notes also
[hippo]: So if you don't drink as much milk and not as often you are said to drink less milk on fewer days. Confusing, eh?
[Eily]: same as many/much, few/little
[Discipulus]: so my 'less' usage sounded not so correct? 'fewer' was more appropriate? i take a note too
