What I never see is how to say that there is too much of something. For example, “There is too much water in the bath.” “There is too much curry on the rice.” (I realize this example is impossible) “There are too many people in this elevator/lift” know what I mean?

So お風呂では水が多すぎる Other adjectives/verbs may work also. =) April 19, 2014 at 5:53 pm #44957 PindyMember Greatly helpful. And makes so much sense.
