Interested in Language
Once I learned how to use many, much, and a lot of.
I have many friends. - I can count them
I have a lot of water. - I cannot count it
I do not have much water. - Denial
Do I have much water? - Question
However, is there an exception when using adjectives?
You feel much lighter.
It is much easier.
These sentences are neither questions nor denials.
I often read such things - in games or somewhere else.
I cannot really remember that I read It is a lot easier or something like this.
So is there are simple rule which allows to use much in any kind of sentenses if the following word is an adjective?
Hello again, I have another question.
What about this sentence:
Since I have a new car, I drive much.
Is much correct or would be a lot grammatically correct?
Sorry for bumping, but I hope someone can answer it...
And by the way:
I think the sentence must be:
Since I have had a new car, I drive much.
However, I still don't know if "much" is correct.
EDIT: HEllo Nightmare,
You are in the habit of returning to your old threads. Do not do this, please. This is confusing. I put a lot of effort in answering your old question and only later realized it was discussed a long time ago.

It is more confusing to create a 2nd thread about the same topic, and I had this question, so the best thing was to retrieve it...
