Usage with nouns modifiers

There is a common pattern that make use of V+는/(으)ㄴ/(으)ㄹ and N+만큼 to describe the extent or degree of that verb.

ㄴ/은/는 만큼 (Present and past)

Expresses the extent to which something is done, or a condition exists

ㄹ/을 만큼 (Future)

Used to express a future action's extent or degree.

Native speakers don't always follow proper spacing rules and may sometimes leave out the space between the particle V+는/(으)ㄴ/(으)ㄹ and N+만큼.
