Language tips - grammar
 
Normal and strong adjectives

Some adjectives are normal or base adjectives (good, bad, dirty, pretty etc).
Other adjectives are strong adjectives (fantastic, awful, filthy, beautiful etc).
We can only use "absolutely" with a strong adjective e.g. "absolutely fantastic."
We can only use "very" with a base adjective e.g. "very good."
NB "Very fantastic" or "absolutely good" are incorrect. However we can use "really" with a base or strong adjective.
