use of "a few" in questions
Hi everyone, I have a question about quantifiers. Can we use "a few" in questions instead of "some" ? For example; is it grammatically correct to say " Would you like a few biscuits? "
Thank you so much...
Re: use of "a few" in questions
There's no grammatical reason you couldn't say this, but a native speaker would rarely phrase a question that way.
