Less is a grammatical particle in the English language, functioning 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.

less(1) is a Unix command that receives a textual input and passes it as output one screenful a time. It is similar to more, but allows greater flexibility (you can move backward in the text as well as forward) and does not have to read the whole text before displaying it, like common text editors do.

To see a truck in your dream, implies that you are overworked. You may be taking on too many tasks and responsibilities and are weighing you down. On a side note, pregnant women often dream of trucks or driving trucks. This may be a metaphor of the load they are carrying or an expression of their changing bodies.

A truck is a wheeled vehicle for transporting goods.
The term is most commonly used in American English and Australian English to refer to what earlier was called a motor truck, and in British English is often called a lorry or, for bigger vehicles, a Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV). This type of truck is a motor vehicle designed to carry goods, with a cab and a tray or compartment for carrying goods.

In Australia and New Zealand a small truck with an open tray is called a "ute" (utility vehicle).

"Pantechnicon" is a British word for a furniture removal van that has now fallen out of usage. It was originally coined in 1830 as the name of craft shop or bazaar, in Motcomb Street in Belgravia, London. The shop soon closed down and the building was turned into furniture warehouse, but the name was kept. Vehicles transporting furniture to and from the building, known as pantechnicon vans, soon came to be known simply as pantechnicons.

The biggest ever truck is the Leibherr T 282B.

For larger vehicles, see semi-trailer trucks.

For smaller vehicles, see pickup trucks.

A hand truck is a small human powered truck. It consists of a metal plate attached to metal tubing and two large wheels. The metal tubing is bent to form a long handle, so as to provide good mechanical advantage. The metal plate is slipped under large heavy objects, and the truck and object are tilted backward until the weight is balanced over the large wheels, making otherwise bulky and heavy objects easy to move.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A railroad truck is a movable platform on pairs of wheels which supports one end of a railroad car; it is also called a bogie. The term is also used for such a part on a skateboard.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Truck is also a (now little used) term meaning to barter or negotiate exchange; it survives in such expressions as "truck farming" and to have no truck with someone.
