Too and too much
Before adjectives without nouns and before adverbs we use too, not too much.
- You are too kind to me. (NOT You are too much kind to me.)
- He arrived too late. (NOT He arrived too much late.)
Too much is used before a noun.
- There is too much noise. (NOT There is too noise.)
- You have bought too much meat. (NOT You have bought too meat.)
At what time or what time
Prepositions are usually dropped before common expressions of time.
- I am busy. Can you come another time? (More natural than ‘Can you come at another time?’)
- What time does the train arrive? (More natural than ‘At what time does the train arrive?’
- I won’t lose this time.
Surely and certainly
Surely does not usually mean the same as certainly. Compare:
- You are certainly not going out in that old coat. (= I am certain that you are not going out in that old coat.)
- Surely, you are not going out in that old coat? (= I will be surprised if you go out in that old coat.)
Such and so
Such is used before a noun with or without an adjective.
- She is such a beautiful woman.
- She is such a lady.
So is used before an adjective without a noun or an adverb.
- She is so beautiful. (NOT She is such beautiful.)
