Местоимения little, few, much, many


Местоимения little и few могут выступать в качестве как местоимений-прилагательных, так и местоимений-существительных.

Little и few в качестве местоимений-прилагательных имеют значение "мало". Little, как и much, употребляется перед неисчисляемыми существительными, а few, подобно many, — перед исчисляемыми:


I have very little time.

There is very little ink in the inkpot.

Не has few friends.

There were very few people there.


В утвердительных предложениях little и few часто заменяются not much и not many, если только они не определяются одним из следующих слов: very, rather, too, so, as, how.


I haven’t got much time.

(вместо: I’ve got little time)

There aren’t many French books in our library.

(вместо: There are few French books in our library.)


N. B.

Little употребляется также в качестве прилагательного со значением "маленький, небольшой" и наречия со значением "мало":

I want the little box, not the big one. (прилагательное)

You rest too little. (наречие)

Little в качестве местоимения-существительного употребляется со значением "мало, немногое", а местоимение few — со значением "немногие":

Little has been said about it.

Many people were invited but few саmе.


Little и few могут употребляться с неопределенным артиклем: a little - немного и a few - немного, несколько:


Please give me a little water.

I have a few books on this subject.


A little - немного и а few - немного, несколько передают значение некоторое, хотя и небольшое количество, в то время как little и few - мало (недостаточно, почти нет):


I’ve got little time.

I’ve got а little time.

Не has few friends.

Не has a few friends.

У меня мало (недостаточно) времени.

У меня есть немного времени.

У него мало (почти нет) друзей.

У него есть несколько друзей.


N. B.

Неопределенный артикль перед little и few относится не к существительному, определяемому этими местоимениями, а к самим местоимениям, с которыми он составляет смысловое целое: a little - немного, a few - немного, несколько.


Little и few могут употребляться с определенным артиклем — the little со значением "то небольшое количество", а the few — со значением "те несколько, те немногие":


Nearly the whole cargo of wheat has been unloaded today. The little that remains will be unloaded tomorrow morning.

Не has read the few English books he has.

Почти весь груз пшеницы был разгружен сегодня. То небольшое количество, которое остается, будет выгружено завтра утром.

Он прочел те несколько английских книг, которые у него имеются.
