Do you know?

● Muitas palavras que descrevem como nos sentimos têm alternativas coloquiais mais fortes que podemos usar em situações informais. Por exemplo, se estamos very hungry, podemos dizer que estamos starving.
very cold: freezing
very hot: boiling
very tired: shattered

Grammar: Qualifying words

Podemos usar estes advérbios de intensidade para reforçar o significado dos adjetivos:

I’m very tired.
I’m really hungry.
I’m so hot.
I’m extremely thirsty.

Alguns são usados com advérbios mais fortes: totally, absolutely, completely

I’m totally exhausted.
I’m absolutely starving.

Não podemos usar essas palavras com todos os adjetivos fortes. Por exemplo, podemos dizer totally exhausted, mas não totally starving.

4 . Observe as frases abaixo. Algumas estão corretas, mas outras têm um advérbio inadequado. Anote as frases corretas.

1 I’m absolutely starving.

2 She’s very boiling.

3 He’s extremely thirsty.

4 I’m completely hot.

5 I’m very shattered.

6 He feels totally cold.

7 We’re really tired.

Grammar: so

So é geralmente usado numa primeira oração seguido de uma segunda que expressa o resultado da situação mostrada na primeira.

He was so hungry, he ate three pizzas.
