    Question so...that / such...that

    ...so much money that... / ...such much money that...
    Are they both grammatically correct? If so, what's the difference between them?

    Re: so...that / such...that

    These are incomplete utterances, so it is impossible to give a good answer. However, the second sounds strange from the outset.

    thank you for your interest. let me edit them.
    Sally has so much money that she can buy a pub. / Sally has such much money that she can buy a pub.
    As you said the first one sounds better. But what about the second one?
    Is there anything wrong with it?

    Okay, "such money" perhaps, if strange, but "such much money" no.
