many vs much. #1 (permalink) Fri May 15, 2015 17:40 pm   many vs much.
 

when and where to use many or much ?
1. We say 'many thanks to you' but 'thank you very much' is also correct.
2. Is is correct to say busy much?

It is not correct to use 'much' or 'many' with 'busy'. You might say
Are you very busy?
