How Many Is A Few? (Days, Weeks, Minutes Etc)


Recommended Posts


I'd interpret that as 2. If you look it up on the Quantity Terminology website. A few is more than one. So really it can be as many as you want. However most people think that when you say. "hey, can you get me a few of those." they think you mean 2 or 3.

While many would agree that few means three or more, the dictionary definition is, “not many but more than one.” So, a few cannot be one, but it can be as low as two.

That is because in dutch we say pare not few. A pare is for me is 2.

I've always thought it was 3 or more. A couple is two, a few... well, it's kinda redundant if a few means 2 or more as a couple already covers 2.

But I guess I'm wrong. Oh well.

I more think more opion. Everyone think som*thing els. I guess
