    so important a boy / so important boy / so important boys

    1. so important a boy

    2. so important boy

    3. so important boys


    Hi guys!

    I think only sentence 1 in grammatical because 2 and 3 have no modifiers before boy(s).


    so,

    4. so good a girl

    5. so many good girls

    6. so much good water


    the 4, 5 and 6 are all grammatical - I think.


    Am I right?

    None of your examples are sentences.


    so,

    4. so good a girl

    5. so many good girls

    6. so much good water


    the 4, 5 and 6 are all grammatical - I think.


    Am I right?
    As always, posting random phrases of four words really means nothing. Please try to put all of your examples in a full sentence and then we can comment.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
