    so much/too much

    Hi,
    Is this sentence correct?
    "I hope I haven't got so much luggage."
    Could you tell me when "too much" is used?
    Thank you very much.

    You want "I hope I haven't got too much baggage". too much = over the limit allowed.
    "so much" needs something further to qualify it. For example:
    "I hope I haven't got so much baggage that I'll have to throw some out, or leave some behind"
    "too much" can stand alone, if the context is clear.
    "so much" needs "so much that ... "
