3
A value between 3-6, but is often used informally to describe any value above 1.

A couple = 2
Several= 7 or more (sev-eralβ€”sev-en)
A few = the range between several and a few
TuanTunc: I don’t know why the fuck people in America commonly use few as their go to bullshit number. Like how fucking much is a few?

Wuani (has lisp): if those silly citizens have any sense, then they should define a few as between 3-6, as a couple is 2, and several is based off seven, it means seven or more.

TuanTunc: isn’t that going under the assumption that all these terms are independent from each other and that all rules and terms English check and balance each other?

Wuani: TING
