As part of our focus on adjectives, we have been thinking about gradable and ungradable adjectives. Adjectives describe a quality that something has. To describe variations in temperature, for instance, we can use hot or cold, which are gradable adjectives but to describe the limits of temperature we use boiling or freezing; these are ungradable adjectives.
GROUP A: Before ungradable adjectives we use these adverbs: absolutely, completely, totally, utterly, really
GROUP B: Before gradable adjectives we use these adverbs: very, extremely, a bit, slightly, really
