Englisch Vortrag in der Schule- fewer, less oder was sonst?
Hallo :) nächste woche habe ich einen Englisch Vortrag (Thema: Crime) Und in einem Satz möchte ich sagen, dass manche Verbrechen weniger werden, andere aber leider nicht.
"...some crimes are getting less/fewer, sadly not all." nimmt man less oder fewer oder sagt man es ganz anders?
Danke für eure Hilfe
People often don’t know when to use less and when to use fewer in a sentence. Here’s how to get it right.
Use fewer if you’re referring to people or things in the plural (e.g. houses, newspapers, dogs,students, children). For example:
People these days are buying fewer newspapers.
Fewer students are opting to study science-related subjects.
Fewer than thirty children each year develop the disease.
Use less when you’re referring to something that can’t be counted or doesn’t have a plural (e.g. money, air, time, music, rain). For example:
It’s a better job but they pay you less money.
People want to spend less time in traffic jams.
Ironically, when I’m on tour, I listen to less music.
Less is also used with numbers when they are on their own and with expressions ofmeasurement or time, e.g.:
His weight fell from 18 stone to less than 12.
Their marriage lasted less than two years.
Heath Square is less than four miles away from Dublin city centre.
Viel Spaß und Glück!
"Some crimes are getting lower .."
"On one hand the crime rate is decreasing in some cases, on the other hand it's increasing in other cases."
Wie wär's hiermit:
There are fewer cases of some sorts of crimes, but sadly this does not apply to all of them.
"fewer" bei zählbaren Substantiven, und "crimes" sind zählbar.
