as an adverb that modifies comparatives.
Usage prescriptionists have ordained that less is not to be used
with count nouns, and that only the word fewer must be used with
things that can be counted; less is used only among mass nouns and
things that can be measured other than by counting.
In actual usage, while fewer is confined to count
nouns and lower numbers, less can refer to count nouns as well.
Less applies to countable things such as miles, sums of money, units
of time, and all statistical data, which are typically thought of
as amounts rather than quanta. The phrase less than is of frequent
use, and fewer is seldom if ever used in it:
This costs less than twenty dollars!
is correct, idiomatic English, while:
*This costs fewer than twenty dollars!
is a solecism, and offends against idiom.
