I still have room for another dessert!

e.g. "I've eaten too much, but I still have room for another dessert."

Hello, do you actually say this sentence in your everyday speech? Does it sound funny to you? Or would you just say "I've had too much, but I can still have another dessert."?

Thank you! :)

    Your sentences are both fine. Most common in AE would be "I'm full, but I still have room for another dessert."

    That's why we're so fat over here.

    We are more likely to say "I still have room for (more) dessert." Dessert is usually countable, but it can be either countable or uncountable.

    The key is the context. If I have had no dessert yet, I could say "I still have room for dessert". If I have had some ice cream and cake and want more ice cream and cake, I could say "I still have room for more dessert." If I have had a cookie and now I want a tart, I could say "I still have room for another dessert."
