# Thread: Many a man and Much a water

1. ## Many a man and Much a water

"Many a man take care of his children carefully."
In this sentence, "Many a + Singular N" has the same meaning with "Many men".
But I wonder if there is " much a + uncountable N" or not? Please give me the answer. Thanks.

But I wonder if there is " much a + uncountable N". No. Never. Please give me the answer. No. Never. Thanks. You're welcome.
Your sample sentence is wrong. "Man" is singular. So to use "Many a man," it would have to say something like:

- Many a man TAKES care . . . .
- Many a man CAN take care . . . .
- Many a man HAS TAKEN care . . . .
- Many a man WILL take care . . . .

What does "Many a man and much a water" mean?

"Water" is uncountable so it can take "much" but it can't take "a".

Because "many + a" made me think of " much a" and wonder if there is " much a" or not. Now i get it. there is no " much a..." Thanks.

Note my corrections above. Don't leave a space after opening quotation mark.

You should get used to using the "Thank" button, Son Ho. That will prevent you from having to make a new post to thank people.
