"Many people eat an apple every day."
Translation:Birçok kişi her gün bir elma yer.
If that is true then I still can't tell the difference. In my English, 'many' and 'a lot of' are synonyms.
Edit: Oh wait. Do you mean that 'birçok' can only be used for count nouns and 'çok' can be used for count and mass nouns?
Edit 2: Then I still don't understand why 'çok kişi' is wrong, because 'a lot of people' is perfectly good English.
Does anyone have a link to a really solid discussion of word order, b/c I keep messing it up and it has become my largest problem. Expressions of time and date, come first. Sometimes things like "her gün" also come first, other time they are wrong if they come first like here. No explanation given.
