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?)

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.

  1. cakes <<< notice the plural!

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