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.

Thank you for your help.
1. Tell me more about rice cake.
2. Tell me a lot about rice cake.

(Here, what about 'a little"? Is 'a little' a noun phrase or an adverbial phrase?)

3. Tell me much about rice cake.
4. Tell me many about rice cake.
(Which one is correct?)

  1. 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.
