    Hello,

    "Words with less than four letters..."

    Is this correct?

    Thanks,

    Hi Arabus,
    I personally think that "...less than four letters..." is just fine. Some people might argue that it should be "fewer" because "letters" is countable. It's very much a debatable issue: you will find no fewer than 10 previous threads on less vs. fewer if you look at the links in the middle of the page here.
