Reinforcement of the Spanish adjective
If you think that a hotel is not just expensive, but very expensive, Spanish also offers you the opportunity to express it.
Un hotel caro – an expensive hotel
Un hotel muy caro – a very expensive hotel
Un hotel carísimo – a very very expensive hotel
Both the combination muy + adjective and the ending -ísimo, -a, -os, –as are very common reinforcements; the latter expresses a higher degree of the respective property.
Muy viejo – viejísimo – very old – very ancient
Muy loco – loquísimo – very crazy – totally crazy
The following combinations can also be used to reinforce adjectives
Extraordinariamente precioso – extraordinarily beautiful
Bastante tranquilo – quite calm
Un poco triste – a tad sad
Poco sentido – little sense
No muy gracioso – not very funny
Nada importante – not important at all
