I thought when you are counting something it needs the classifier. No? or does the use of an adjective make it no longer necessary?
"I thought when you are counting something it needs the classifier." -> You're right.
if that's true, it's not being taught here. Sometimes it is marked as required, sometimes not.
But that does not apply in this case? or should it be Một cái muỗng đường là đủ?
In this case, muỗng is the classifier for đường, it makes the noun countable.
Someone will correct me but cái muỗng đường can be also correct although the meaning is completely different. Like saying one sugar spoon is enough.
It is usually "spoonful of sugar" when the amount of sugar is not precise. In recipies and such the size of the spoon is specified, e. g., one teaspoon of sugar.
Is this sentence read aloud anywhere? I have trouble imagining what muỗng đường sounds like.
Why is là used here?
Is "thìa" a synonym for muỗng?
