1. Tell me more about rice cake.
2. Tell me a lot about rice cake.

(What is the part of speech of 'more'? A noun or an adverb? Are both the same?)

Both are correct if you add an "s" to cake.

"More" is a noun in this sentence.

You can see how "more" is used in these definitions.

1. Tell me more about rice cakes.
2. Tell me a lot about rice cakes.

"A little" is a noun phrase. The articles, "a," "an,", "the" are like road signs that tell you that a noun is ahead.

3. is correct -- if you change "cake" to cakes.

What about the following?

4. Tell me a little about rice cake.

(Is 'a little 'a noun phrase' or 'an adverbial phrase'?)

  • English -

    cakes <<< notice the plural!

    "a little" is a noun phrase, yes, and it's serving as the direct object of the sentence.
