I have a question about the usage of "would rather". We usually say: "I would rather do somthing" and it's correct. But can we say: "I would rather something"?
For example, in these situations item b is correct, but what about item a?
We can have tea or coffee. a: I'd rather coffee. b: I'd rather have coffee.
We can see a comedy or a documentary. a: I would rather the comedy. b: I would rather see the comedy.
