MUCH or MANY or A LOT OF??? Countable and Uncountable Nouns!
So guys today I wanted to talk to you about much and many let's go hi guys today we're going to talk about something that many of my students get wrong a lot of the time and this is the difference between much many a lot of and lots of well firstly these two mean the same thing you can use them interchangeably .
These ones however cannot be used for the same nouns and I'm going to explain how you use them right now so with uncountable nouns well these refer to something that can't be counted and they don't normally have a plural form some exceptions though are drinks if I'm in a restaurant and I ask for two coffees well I'm really asking .
For two cups of coffee that's why I can say two coffees with the plural if I ask for two sugars in my tea well we really know that I'm asking for two sachets or two cubes of sugar in my tea so on that own we can't use them as plurals so the uncountable nouns go with much and much is something we tend to use in the interrogate 'iv or the negative form .
I don't have much water do you have much homework and accountable is go with many we can use this affirmative negative and interrogative I have many apples I don't have many windows there aren't many girls which is never normally a problem so for the affirmative much especially it can sound incredibly formal I have much water if it sounds a bit sounds a .
Bit too much so instead of saying much in the affirmative I would use a lot of water I have a lot of water I have lots of water many on the other hand is more widely used with the affirmative so I have many apple I have a lot of apples they're more or less the same in this case how quick was that well I hope you guys liked it if .
