Suppose I want to ask for two pairs of chopsticks for myself and someone I'm with.
お箸【はし】を二【ふた】つください mean I'm asking for two chopsticks or two sets of chopsticks? (Also, am I using the right counter? I'm learning from Duolingo here..)
Can it change for other objects and their respective counters? Are there maybe other words often used to avoid confusion about some x quantities of a thing? I see this misunderstanding in English a bit too much, and I'm wondering if it happens in Japanese too.
