    many more and much more

    "There are many/much more people than I thought".

    Which one is right? I think "many" is wrong because it's not an adverb.

    Is 'many' in 'Many more' an adverb? I haven't found any dictionaries that say so.

    Re: many more and much more

    It certainly seems to be acting as one.
