la gramática española: Spanish Grammar: Comparisons of Quantity
- Comparisons of quantity are special grammar constructions with adjectives.
- Quantity is used with different amounts of nouns.
And actually, comparisons of quantities include types of comparisons of equality and inequality. We’ll use the word TANTO (as much/many) to connotate quantities, and it changes in number and gender according to the object that you’re quantifying!
Tanto + object (masc/fem/singular/plural) + como
Tanto dinero (el dinero)
As much money
Tanta prisa (la prisa)
In as much of a hurry
Tantos libros (los libros)
As many books
Tantas computadoras (las computadoras)
As many computers
When we use actions instead of objects, we use VERB + TANTO + COMO.
Yo no estudio tanto como mi hermana.
I don’t study as much as my sister.
¡Yo como tanto como mi perro!
I eat as much as my dog!
No tengo tanto dinero como Bill Gates.
I don’t have as much money as Bill Gates.
