Advanced Description

The word 'mehrere' is derived from the German words 'mehr' meaning 'more' and 'ere' meaning 'several'. It is commonly used in both spoken and written German to express an unspecified number of items that is greater than two. For example, 'Ich habe mehrere Bücher gelesen' translates to 'I have read several books'.

'Mehrere' can be used with both countable and uncountable nouns. When used with countable nouns, it agrees in gender, number, and case with the noun it modifies. For example, 'mehrere Autos' means 'several cars', while 'mehrere Bücher' means 'several books'. When used with uncountable nouns, it remains in its base form. For example, 'mehrere Wasser' means 'several water'.

It is important to note that 'mehrere' implies an indefinite quantity and does not specify an exact number. If you want to express a specific number, you would use other determiners such as 'einige' (some) or 'viele' (many).
