@nomadatlatl “A bit” is more to be used along with “A little bit” as well as by itself, it is to indicate measurements/size/quantity. +1 example: “Are you going already? Stay a little longer!” “Alright, just a bit!”
“A bit of” can also add “little”= A little bit of. It is mostly used to refer to a specific measurement of something. example: “Do you have a little bit of sugar?” “We're just not there as yet, see, there's still a bit of doubt.”
@gxpocalypz Thanks again. When modifying adjective or adverb, "a bit" should be used, whereas when modifying noun, "a bit of" should be used, right? For instance, He's a bit kind. There's a bit of a misunderstanding. Can I have your thoughts?
@nomadatlatl The examples you gave are 100% correct! There will always be some variations and exceptions so look out for those, I myself have some doubts sometimes but once you get the hang of it, you’ll be thinking in English 24/7!
