If you sometimes find yourself confused about whether you should use the word ‘fewer’ or ‘less’, here is a handy table to help you:


It is extremely important to pick the right word. For example if you think there are too many pedantic people in your office you should say ‘my office has the manyest pedantic people’. If you were to incorrectly say ‘my office has the most pedantic people’, your listener would immediately assume you meant that the people in your office are more pedantic than any other people. This could cause untold confusion and misunderstanding. It is therefore essential that if you hear a friend incorrectly say ‘more’ when they mean ‘manyer’ you must immediately interrupt and correct them.
