    nlinkske fought

    Hello, I did not know there is such a good web site like this in the world. I should have known of it earlier. Today I came by to ask a question which has bothered me for a long time.

    Question is that Do not drink too much. Focus more on~, Spend too much, etc.

    I know that "much" can be used as pronoun, adjective and adverb. Then, in those
    sentences, "much" was used as pronoun or adverb?

    I also found Drink heavily, focus heavily, and spend heavily,etc.Then "much" was used as adverb?, but some people say it was used as pronoun. That's why I am confused now.

    Please help me out and get me out of it.

    Then. thanks a million in advace.

    In 'spend/drink too much', 'much' is used as a pronoun, standing for 'too much money/alcohol'

    In 'I drink heavily', 'heavily is used as an adverb; 'I like you very much', 'much is used as an adverb.

    'I drink heavily (adverb) ', 'I drink too much (pronoun) and 'I am a heavy (adjective) drinker' may convey similar messages, but they are constructed differently.
