Hello! Emotion: smile

The other day I came across a sentence that no matter how namy times I read it, I just don't seem to be able to completely understand it.

The sentence is "You want to narrow it down for me some?"

I took it from a conversation in a book
AngelsTroy: You girls like a drink?
Emily: Sure, white wine.
Troy: Maggie?
Maggie: Something
Troy: You want to narrow it down for me some?

I guess "narrow it down" means "to reduce to options" - But what does "some" do there?

Thank you in advance!

I guess it's 'something'.
hello,

this is just an opinion i dont know if its the same or not but compared to my language sometimes we put the word like this and it means "abit" so i think what it means is "to reduce the options abit"

Thanks

Yes, it means to reduce the options a bit (two words) -- or somewhat.

Then, wouldn't it be better if the sentence were: "Can you narrow it down (a bit) for me?" ?

Could I put "some" in the place of "a bit" in that sentence? Or, if I want to use "some" I have to put it after "for me" necessarily?
I would say it has the same meaning if you change it to "a bit" but it's not better. It's just the writer's choice.

Can you believe that it took me ages to understand the meaning of the sentence? Actually, I was going to ask about it here, and while writing the post I realised what it meant! Emotion: rofl
