AFTER TRYING THE VALENCIA MARATHON RUNNERS FELT ABSOLUTELY EXHAUSTED”
“EXHAUSTED” is a strong (non-gradable = strong= extreme) adjective which means very, very TIRED
WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT GRADABLE & NON-GRADABLE =STRONG ADJECTIVES?
Gradable/ Strong Adjectives
Tom is very cold.
Sarah is absolutely freezing.
Cold is a “weak” or “gradable” adjective. It could be 5°, 10°, or more or less than this. We use it with words like:
slightly cold, a bit cold, very cold, extremely cold
Freezing is a “strong” or “ungradable” adjective – it is very, very cold! It can’t be a bit freezing, so we use it with words which mean “the most”.
absolutely freezing, completely freezing, utterly freezing
If you aren’t sure whether an adjective is strong or weak, you can use “really” – it works with all adjectives.
Similar to very: slightly, a bit, a little, extremely, terribly, incredibly.
Similar to absolutely: completely, utterly, totally.
