    too more

    Hi,

    I would like to ask if we can use 'too more' in any sentence or not.

    -There are too more cars in the street than I expected.

    Thanks.

    No.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    You can start the senence with

    There are too many cars...

    I'm not sure if that's what you meant.

    But if you start it with that, you can't end it with "than I expected".

    Re: too more

    You can say:

    There are many cars in the street.
    There are too many cars in the street. (Some extra context would be needed to explain why it's "too many". Too many for what?)
    There are more cars in the street than I expected.
    There are many more cars in the street than I expected.

    We have no way of knowing which one you mean.

    Thank you for pointing this out. I think I now see what aysaa wanted to say.

    There are more cars in the street than I expected.

    Edit: you beat me to it

    Thanks.

    Did you mean, "two more"? (Unfortunately, this seems to be relatively common, just like they're/there, you're/your, etc. )
    Dear native English speakers of this forum,
    Please, always point out my grammatical mistakes, assuming you have "the time and the inclination". That is really the most effective way for me to improve. Thank you very much.

    Please note that I am NOT an English teacher.
