What does ''mucho mas'' mean?
Hola! Can someone please tell me what "mucho mas" means? Does it mean "and many more" or something else?
mucho más = much more
demasiado = too much
gran cantidad = great amount
tanto más = so much more
that accent is no longer necessary unless it avoids confusion with mas, but personally, I prefer to use it. It's like ésta, the only time that the accent is required is to avoid confusion. "new" rule from when I was in school.
With your web-searching skills, you should be able to provide at least one citation to back-up this assertion. Having been surprised by your assertion, I checked what the D R A E had to say and found two entries (one with and one without) the tilde. Neither made any reference to the other nor offered any suggestion that there had been changes to the standard/recommended orthographies.
