The less said, the better…
A physiotherapy clinic in my childhood hometown has moved to flashy new premises and simultaneously picked at a scab; the shibboleth that separates those of us that observe a distinction in the use of the words few and less from those that don’t. I can imagine their business plan for moving premises…
- Draw up plans to move to bigger premises. Check!
- Invest heavily in new fixtures and fittings. Check!
- Source signage for the storefront windows. Check!
- Make a hash of the English language. Check!
A pedant once had to confess
Some people just fail to impress
When they’re compelled to show
That they simply don’t know
The difference between fewer and less!
