    Fewer or less

     Fewer or less


    Fewer is used with countable nouns: people, animals, chairs, shoes.


    Less is used for uncountable, usually abstract nouns: money, happiness, snow, idealism.

    Less is also used with adjectives and adverbs.


    The rule for when to use fewer or less is similar to the rule for when to use amount or number. Number and fewer are both used when you can count the items to which you are referring. Amount and less are both used when you cannot count the items to which you are referring.
