i've been on board with a lot of recent AP style changes, but allowing writers to use "less" and "fewer" interchangeably is a bridge too far
@healyn “fewer than zero, the 1987 film based on the award-winning novel…”
Hi, @healyn! Do you have any advice that might help newcomers to the English language to comprehend when to use fewer instead of less or less instead of fewer?
@Dooovall hi Daniel...basically if an object/concept can be counted in individual units, it should be "fewer" ("fewer calories" vs "less fat")
@Dooovall this is actually a better explainer because there are nuances to it
