I'd like to understand the usage of 'much.' Question 1 My textbook says 'much' cannot be used in positive sentences unless it is used as the subject or a part of the subject, but it can be used in positive sentences if it is used together with 'as,' 'so,' 'too,' and so on, i.e. s11 and s21 are incorrect but s12 and s22 are correct. Is that right? s11: Bob drinks much wine. s12: Bob drinks too much wine. s21: Bob wants much butter. s22: Bob wants as much butter as Meg. Question 2 But my textbook doesn't say anything about why. Why are s11 and s21 incorrect and why are s12 and s22 correct? Thank you.
