    Default adj.

    Hello,

    -You are beautiful so much.
    -You are clever too much.

    As a native person, do they seem incorrent to you when 'so much' and 'too much' are used after any adj. ?

    Thanks.

    They are incorrect. These terms are never normally used after an adjective.
    The correct way of expressing these sentences would be:

    "You are so beautiful", or "You are so very beautiful".
    "You are too clever", or "You are far too clever".
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....

    Recently, you posted a few other threads along the same lines. I refer you back to: http://www.usingenglish.com/forum/as...tml#post956656 and the other thread that is linked to in post #2 of that thread.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
