Less or fewer?

When do you use the words less and fewer?

Many of us are taught that we should use less with uncountable nouns (e.g. traffic, rain, trouble) and fewer when referring to things that can be counted (e.g. cars, showers, problems).

But is this always the case? Watch Scott Thornbury’s last video in the Real Vocabulary series to find out the answer.
