.
Use much of when the noun is modified or when the object is a pronoun:

I don't want much milk.
I don't want much of this milk.
I don't want much of it.

I thought Mr. Micawber emigrated to Australia, not to Japan. :)

Hi Vamsivakas,

much ofyou can find in idioms:/you can find them in dictionary/
For exp:
-much of muchness=/it is six of one and half a dozen of the other.
-not much of a scholar=not a good...
I didn't make much of this grammar.= I didn't understand...
You mustn't make too much of that problem.= attach importance to...
It wasn't much of this dinner.= not a good...
You are not much of a cinema-goer.= You seldom go...
He is not much of a linguist.= not a good...
I don't think much of this new teacher.= I have poor opinion of him.
But:
Much of what you say is true. /It's probably not idiom; you can continue: much of what you do is good.
etc./
I learn this with you.I didn't know it either.
Thanks:
Kati Svaby

Cristovam, don't believe that I knew this if you don't ask what is 'much of' I must admit I 've never seen the word 'much of' only I have a good dictionary. So when you ask something you help me to learn that.

Many thanks.
Kati Svaby
