    Complete fun or completely fun.

    1)The day was completely fun.

    2)The day was complete fun.

    I think the first one is correct and second one will be acceptable if a is added before complete.

    Re: Complete fun or completely fun.

    Neither works very well for me. I'd use something like great fun.

    Yours maybe appropriate but I just want to know the difference between those.

    Re: Complete fun or completely fun.

    There is no difference between the two you posted - they are both incorrect.

    Re: Complete fun or completely fun.

    You will hear it used with both adjectives (tremendous fun) and adverbs (really fun). Do not use the indefinite article.

    Re: Complete fun or completely fun.

    1)The day was completely fun.
    2)The day was complete fun.
    I think the first one is correct and second one will be acceptable if
    a is added before complete.

    Like Tdol, I don't find these to be very natural. However, it's possible that either might be heard in informal conversation, although I don't know which would be more likely.
    The second one is definitely not improved by the addition of "a", to my mind it would become incorrect.

    not a teacher
