INGILIZCE GRADABLE AND NON-GRADABLE ADJECTIVES

Mesajgönderen yapay-zeka » Çrş Tem 11, 2018 4:35 pm

We can modify gradable adjectives with adverbs to say that something has more or less of a quality.

Modifying adverbs:

More of a quality: very, rather, really, extremely

Less of a quality: a bit, a little, fairly, slightly

Gradable adjectives: interesting, scared, surprised, difficult, tired, big, busyeg. I saw a really interesting movie last night.

That restaurant is fairly busy.

We can’t use the same modifying adverbs with non-gradable adjectives. We must use intensifying adverbs to emphasise their quality.

Intensifying adverbs: absolutely, completely, entirely, totally, utterly

Non-gradable adjectives: fascinating, terrified, amazed, impossible, shattered, awful, excellent, huge, superb, terrible

eg. I was completely shattered by Friday.

The concert was absolutely superb.

NB: We can use ‘really’ for both gradable and non-gradable adjectives.
