For example:

How far is it?

How tall are you?

How much does it cost?

How long does it last?

I understand things like prepositional phrases where the phrase actually specifies a place or relationship to an object, as "over the hill" and "on the lawn" and "under the blanket." But I don't remember how quantity-related phrases are described. Would they simply be a subclass of interrogative phrases or sentences?

  • You can use "How many" – GiaFil7 May 3 '18 at 13:43
  • So let me see. "Far" is an adverb. "How far" would be a comparative adverb or adverb phrase?" "How many" would do the same thing. Still not sure if I am getting there. – Raymond May 3 '18 at 17:02
