    many furniture

    1. many furniture
    2. a great number of furniture

    An English study guide published in Taiwan says that the above two expressions are acceptable, but I think neither expression is correct. Am I right?

    Re: many furniture

    You are correct, and the study guide is wrong.

    A large amount of furniture was crammed into the small room.
    The room was so large that even with the many pieces of furniture it held, it still seemed empty.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
