    twice) as many books as she has.

    When you read this kind of comparative, do you make a pause or logical deduction like 1 or 2? I mean if you feel in 1 like 2*(as many books as the number of her books=4) =8 or (2*many books)*(the number of her books=4)=8.

    ex)I have two times(twice) as many books as she has.

    1.I have (two times) (as many books as she has).
    2.I have (two times as many books) (as she has).

    I don't see the difference. If she has 4 books, you have 8 books.
