「Thing」の類語とその違い

Q: thing と stuff はどう違いますか?
A: @BuddyPretty_206 That's a good question!
I'm not 100% sure but i think that it all depends on the context. If I'm talking about a concrete object I would use "thing", like "what is that thing?"; "that heart shaped thing". Instead of "stuff", which i'd use to refer of a not specific thing or things, for instance when you say "there's a lot of old stuff in the attic", "Alice got a lot of books and stuff in her room", "kitchen related stuff".
Maybe is not neccessarily this way but at least is how i use it S: hope it's useful
Q: thing と stuff はどう違いますか?
A: @Noborio: almost the same. "Thing" refers to one object. "Stuff" usually refers to many objects, or a lot of one object.
Here is a good rule: if you can count it, use "thing", "things", or "stuff". But if you cannot count it, you must use "stuff".
For example: She has a lot of stuff in her backpack. ✔
She has a lot of things in her backpack. ✔
What is the stuff leaking from the pipe? ✔
What are the things leaking from the pipe? ❌ (Grammar is correct, but it doesn't make sense.)
Q: "The important thing is..." と "A important thing is..." はどう違いますか?
A: "A important thing" is incorrect -- it would be "An important thing."

The important thing = the one single important thing about something. Implies that it is very important.

An important thing = one of multiple important things about something. Not as strong of an implication as the first sentence.
Q: I can't do two thing at a time と I can't do two things at the same time はどう違いますか?
A: I can't do two things at a time.
I can't do two things at once.
I can't do two things at the same time.
I can't do two things simultaneously.

They all have the same meaning.
Q: The thing is ... と The point is ... はどう違いますか?
A: Nothing really, it's all about context, in them same context both mean «the important matter» or «what i'm trying to say is...»
