The following example is from Cambridge dictionary:
A: Want some sugar in your coffee?
B: Only half a spoon, please
They categorise 'only' as an adverb phrase, which I agree with; however, they consider 'half' as a word that modifies the adverb. I'm of the opinion that 'half' modifies, or describes 'spoon'. So why isn't 'half' an adjective that describes 'spoon' in this sentence?
