adverb + adjective (emphasis)

An adjective phrase can consist of an adverb + adjective.  In the following example: ‘obvious‘ is the head of the adjective phrase.

It was painfully obvious.

The adverb ‘painfully’ is used here to emphasize how annoying or unpleasant something was.


C1 point 199 in the category of MODALITY/ MODIFYING ADJECTIVES

adjectives with adverbs, often for emphasis.

The two examples in the EGP are:

  • painfully obvious
  • highly unlikely

The wording of the EGP explanation is quite vague.  It also overlaps modifying gradable adjectives with extreme adverbs of degree (‘absolutely’, ‘extremely‘, ‘incredibly’, ‘totally‘) to intensify their meaning.

We might interpret it as ‘adverbs of emphasis, emphasizers, emphasizing adverbs’ or ‘intensifiers’.  More frequent examples would include:

absolutely, certainly, clearly, definitely, naturally, obviously, positively, really, simply, and undoubtedly.

 

*although there are 50 examples of ‘highly’ in the following top 1000 results, there are no examples of ‘painfully’.
