    as much as/as many as

    Are the sentences grammatically correct?


    I'm glad as much as you do.

    He killed people as many as you did.

    I'd say "he killed as many people as you did".

    It's not easy to fit 'much' into that sentence.

    Perhaps I'm glad – as much as you are, but it's not very natural.

    Can you give example sentences that include as much as and as many as?

    As much as I'd like to, I can't think of as many examples as I'd like to.

    Can you give example that includes 'as many as' as well?

    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".
