Adjective Week! Day 4
Extreme adjectives will make your speech and writing more interesting. Compare:
I was absolutely astounded at his utterly vile temper.
I was very surprised at his very bad temper.
Extreme adjectives already include the meaning of ‘very’.
very good -> fantastic
very hot -> boiling
If you want to make them even stronger, use the intensifiers such as absolutely, completely, totally, utterly.
These intensifiers are known as ‘Adverbs of Degree’. Follow the blog for a post on these in the future. Alternatively you could ask your teacher or sign up for a free trial lesson at Ty-Jia!
