What's the difference between a few and several?


1 Answer

Couple is used when referring to two things, as in "a couple of days ago," whereas few and several are less specific. Few means "not many but some," as in "The train leaves in a few minutes," and several denotes more than the words couple and few do, but implies lesser, than the word many does.
