    Default When do we use more/much of?

    Hello everyone,

    When do we use more of and much of ?
    I wish I had better English, but I work hard to improve it. I'm studying for IGCSE, so I'm only interested in BrE.

    Please write some sentences in which you want to use them.

    Animals have as much of a right as any other living thing. Can it be Animals have as much right as any other living thing?

    Your title and first thread said you wanted to know about "more of/much of". However, the sentences you have given suggest that you want to know about "as much of a right/as much right". Please decide which question you want us to answer.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    If you take a look at my sentences again, you will see there's a difference between much and much of. And that's the difference I want to get to know. If it's not well-clarified, 'Zorbing is more of a one-time experience than a hobby you take up, much like zip lining' What's your opinion in that one? Sorry for not providing the right information.

    Well, in that sentence, more of and much are correctly used.
    Please do not edit your question after it has received a response. Such editing can make the response hard for others to understand.
