Which one do you think it is correct? and why? thanks.
1. not many come to my home
2. many not come to my home
I think the first one,just because:
-the first reason is that:If you put the first sentence into a context,it does make sense.For examples:
Elan:How about the party last night?
Smith:Not many come to my home.
-the second sentence(actually,don't know It can be called "sentence",it has no verb!!)I think it need a verb!
The first sentence is correct, I agree. "not", an adverb, modifies "many", an adjective in form, but a substantive noun in function. That is, "many" stands for many people: Not many people come to my house.
The second sentence has a verb. It's "come", and to negate it use "do not" or "don't", like this,
EX: Many don't come to my house.
All the best.
