Much Vs. Many
 
The words (much) and (many) mean a lot of


 If a noun is in singular, we use much 
    Example: much money


 If a noun is in plural, we use many 
    Example: many friends 
 

 
Use of much / many

1. In everyday English, we normally use much / many only in questions and negative clauses

    Example: How much money have you got 
    Example: Carla does not have many friends


 
 In positive clauses with so, as or too, we also use much / many

    Example: Carla has so many friends 
    Example: She has as many friends as Sue 
    Example: Kevin has too much money  
 
3. In all other positive clauses, however, we prefer expressions like a lot of / lots of

    Example: Carla has a lot of / lots of friends 
    Example: Kevin has a lot of / lots of money

 
In formal texts, however, much / many are also common in positive clauses. you will notice for example when you read English news 
 

 
Countable / Uncountable Nouns

In connection with much / many people often speak of countable nouns and uncountable nouns

Countable nouns have a singular and a plural form 
In plural, these nouns can be used with a number (that's why they are called 'countable nouns')l 
Countable nouns take many

Example: 100 friends - many friends


 
Uncountable nouns can only be used in singular 
These nouns cannot be used with a number (that's why they are called 'uncountable nouns')l 
Uncountable nouns take much

Example: 100 money - much money
