Difference between much and many
There is a huge difference between much and many.
Much refers to a quantity that cannot be counted. Many refers to a quantity that can be counted.
For example, one would say, “he talks too much ,” because the quantity of talking can’t be counted in numbers. On the other hand, one would say, “he doesn’t use too many words to talk,” because words are individual entities that can be counted.
