    Default So or such.

    Hi, teachers!
    I have seen this sentence: The meeting was held in Sony's conference hall, and was uproarious such that presentation of motions was almost impossible.

    Transformational CEOs: Leadership And Management Success in Japan - Kimio Kase, Francisco J. Sáez-Martínez, Hernán Riquelme - Google Sách

    I am wondering why it isn't so uproarious that instead of uproarious such that.
    Could you please explain it, please?

    Your suggestion is much better. It could also have been written as " and was uproarious to such an extent that".
