Anonymous:"Almost" is an adverb. It is synonymous with "nearly". It is usually followed by a number, a quantifier (all) or an participial adjective (finished)
"Most" can be an noun, adjective or adverb. It is usually followed by "of the + noun"
The meanings are very similar but the rules of when to use them differ.
