Sometimes = thỉnh thoảng, many = nhiều ... không đếm được

Hi there. When "many" use in question it is read "nhiêu" but when "many" use in a positive sentence or negative it is read "nhiều". Example: Bạn có bao nhiêu bộ quần ào? (How many clothes do you have?) Tôi có nhiều bộ quần áo. (I have many clothes). Tôi có không nhiều bộ quần áo. (I have not many clothes). Much, some, a lot of are the same.
