fewness ‎(usually uncountable, plural fewnesses)

    • 2000, David Pierce, Irish Writing in the Twentieth Century: A Reader (page 625)
      There are, says the Irish triad, 'three fewnesses that are better than plenty: a fewness of fine words; a fewness of cows on grass; a fewness of good friends around good ale'. As an Ulsterman I would agree.
