Can you also put it as "Jeg behøver en smule af sukker."? When can you omit the "af" when you want to say "a bit of..."? In another example, the sentence "Han laeser en smule af bogen" is listed as the correct way of saying "He reads a bit of the book." where the "af" is used to mean "of".
That one is difficult, but no, you can't say "en smule af sukker." It sounds wrong in Danish. "En smule sukker" is the right pronouncation. :)
I am an English speaker and we would say I need a small piece of sugar or a bit of sugar
Why is it not: I need a bit sugar?
