I don’t understand when I should use zero article.
Can you explain me usage of article in these sentences: 1. They have little experience. 2. You can have a little rest.
I think in both cases we are talking about abstractions. Please help me.

Though it seems to be a simple question it is some what lengthy to answer.
Little is some (what) lesser in degree to a little.
Little may mean not much and a little may mean some (what). some times the meaning may be the same.
They have little experience may mean:
They do not have much experience
You can have a little rest.
The sentence may mean you can have some rest.
