    Re: as much as/as many as

    That's because I can't possibly drink that much water.

    That can be re-phrased as When it comes to glasses of water, I don't drink as many as I'm supposed to every day. Tarheel's version is more natural, but they mean the same thing regardless of where the object phrase. (I hope I got that grammar term right. I make as many grammar terminology mistakes as I can. I'm not proud of it.)

    Using the proper terminology is as much of a concern for me as it is for you.

    Does "as much as" mean "even though" here?

    ringu, as I wrote in your 'Boston' thread earlier,

    "Clicking on your symbol shows that after 49 posts you have not given a single Thank or Like!

    They're right there in the bottom left-hand corner of every post.

    Looking back over your last few threads I also notice that you have failed to include a word of thanks anywhere – even when asking follow-up questions.

    Please click on Thank or Like as soon as you read this message to acknowledge that you have read and understood it".
