My understanding is that "few" emphasizes the paucity of what there are, while "a few" emphasizes the fact that, hey, at least there are some.
Consider the following cloze sentences: Which would you put in the first sentence and which would you put in the second sentence?
1. Mrs. Spiegzweiler was disappointed that {few, a few} of the students had cheated.
2. Mrs. Spiegzweiler was disappointed that {few, a few} of the students had passed the test.
If you're a native English speaker, you put "a few" in the first sentence and "few" in the second.
In Spanish, however, they're both *pocos*.
How would those two sentences be rendered in tlhIngan Hol?
