    Hi everyone,

    Can I use much more with uncountable and countable nouns?
    Thank you.

    Carla, you have made 266 posts on this forum. Do we really have to tell you again that you must start every new sentence with a capital letter and end every sentence with a punctuation mark? Please edit your post.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Much more money
    Many more people

    You will hear some native speakers say much more people, but you will also find many native speakers who regard this as wrong.

    So Carla, you hit the Like button on my post asking you to go back and edit your post using correct capitalisation and punctuation, but you failed to actually edit your post. Are we wasting our time?

    Not at all- Carla re-posted with capital letters and punctuation, but it was deleted as a duplicate thread. I saw the deleted post. I have added them to her post.

    OK, sorry. I didn't see any duplicate post. I only saw this unedited one. Sorry Carla.
