    half like it

    Q: Do you like chocolate?

    A: Oh! I don't half like it.

    (I like it very much)

    Is it correct?

    PS - or 'Oh yes - not half', or just 'Not half'.

    Re: half like it

    G'day Sameer,
    Yes.
    To not half like something is to fully like something.
    The meaning is in the 'not half' as in not half hearted but fully committed.
