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.

Example:

Un hotel caroan expensive hotel
Un hotel muy caroa very expensive hotel
Un hotel carísimoa 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.

Example:

Muy viejo – viejísimovery old – very ancient
Muy loco – loquísimovery crazy – totally crazy

The following combinations can also be used to reinforce adjectives

Example:

Extraordinariamente precioso extraordinarily beautiful
Bastante tranquiloquite calm
Un poco triste – a tad sad
Poco sentidolittle sense
No muy graciosonot very funny
Nada importantenot important at all
