Is there any difference between fler and mer?
Roughly speaking, fler is used for number and mer for amount.
Kind of like 'fewer' and 'less' in English? Fewer bottles, less milk?
on that note, how are those translated into Swedish? (fewer, less). Do they have the exact counterpart of 'fler/mer'?
Less = mindre
Fewer = färre
More = fler (number)
More = mer (amount)
Generally, the difference is a bit blurred, with mer/mindre being used for number too. But it's good to know that there might be a difference.
As I understand, basically we use FLER for countable and MER for UNcountable nouns: fler människor - mer kärlek
"Fem" is a plural number, why not "Fem eller flera"?
