    Question a bit

    "A bit" means "a little, slightly". Can it be used before nouns? Can we say "I have a bit money?"

    Hi, Daisy,
    Yes, it can. A bit of patience, courage, money, salt and what not.
    Cheers

    It can, but only with "of" in most cases, as in your example: a bit of money.

    One can say "I have a bit part in the school play.

    It can also be an adverb: It is a bit warm in here.
