Some pie VS some of pie VS some of the pie Mrs Huber gets up and forcibly feeds some of her pie to Susan Yeah, script says 'some of her pie.' But I've been wondering what's the exact diffrence between them as follows: Would they just all become interchangeable in the script above? -> Some pie VS some of pie VS some of the(her) pie

some of pie is not correct. Never say that. Some the (or her) pie is correct Some pie is also correct. Some pie or some of her pie can be used interchangeably. some pie just indicates you're having pie. Some of her pie is a little more descriptive.

"some of pie" is just plain wrong. You never hear that. "some pie" means "pie", and can be any pie. "some of HER pie" clearly refers to the pie she made.

"Some of pie" will not work. It is not an option as is. "Her" can not be used with the.. Her will only work like you already have it. "Some of her pie" or "Some of the pie she made."
