    Twice as much/As many as/ As much as

    1) THE BASES:

    a)  AS MUCH/MANY as : not so simple already ... You must know how to recognize countables ( that you can count) and  uncountables (given in 'quantity' and not in 'numbers') always  remembering all the exceptions:

    ex : milk, chocolate, happiness, honey, patience, friendship ...

    b)  As many + countables = as many books as

    ex : He doesn't have as many collection stamps as you have.

    c)  As much + uncountables = as much rain as

    ex : Jim doesn't eat as much chocolate as I do! That's impossible!

    d)  BEWARE : The nouns ( Coun. or Uncoun.)  can be just implied or omitted if they have already been mentioned.

    ex : Wow! Those DVDs! I don't have as many as you!




    2) Things become more 'complicated' (just a little !  ) ... YOU MUSTN'T THINK IN FRENCH or in any other language than English ...) but many students do it anyway ... and become the victims of the traps of the 2 different logics of the languages ... 

    If you mean : 'Tom has twice more DVDs as I have', an English from Britain  will say : 'Tom has twice as many DVDs as I have' , which is very unatural for French people and many foreigners :  you must say 'TWICE AS MANY DVDs AS I have.' (respecting, of course, the uses imposed by countables and uncountables !)

    a) 'Twice as much.... as' ; 'Three times as many ... as' :

    ex : There is ten times as much traffic in Boston as in New Bedford...

    ex : I need four times as many leaflets as what you sent me.

    b) twice as much as... possible ; three times as many ... as possible.

     For as few ... as possible and as little ... as possible British people tend to reverse the adjective and use twice as much/many ... as'
