The English language within its composition comes from the various influences of Old Norse, derived from the Viking invasions that occurred in Great Britain during the 8th and 9th centuries.
It is relevant to note that most of the terms or words in English have their origin in Latin roots , since this was the lingua franca of Christianity and the European intellectual order.
When Normandy conquers England, linguistic exchanges of the language take place, entering a Latin root coupled with conventional vocabularies, designing an orthography that apparently had a close proximity to the Romance languages , which at the time generated Middle English.
Later, the vowel displacement that began in England gave way to the emergence of modern English , made up of all that variety of words from different languages, which managed to bring together a wide vocabulary.
The grammar and lexicon of languages within their literary evolution have been strengthened, opening up large dictionaries , where the terms to be used within an orthographic and grammatical order are formally established.
Use of the many in the English language and its difference with the much
The term many is used when speaking of a plural noun and for things that can be counted, that is, for countable objects. Countable nouns are generally used with a number and have both plural and singular forms.
The term many can also be used when asking questions and in negative clauses.
The much for its part, is used when speaking of a noun in the singular, in common cases for things that cannot be counted, that is, for uncountable objects. It is important to note that uncountable nouns can only be used in the singular, which means that they cannot be used with a number.
It can be said that among the uncountable objects there are abstract nouns such as love, but almost all things have the possibility of becoming countable according to their typology . Much and many in English are used with negatives and questions based on quantities of things.
An example of accountants would be the word people , which means “persons or people” and can be quantified. Otherwise, it is the term “money” which is uncountable, since what is counted are dollars, reais or euros.
