    Default 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

    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 - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
