    so that-such that

    Hello,

    I would like to ask a question about 'so that'.

    She is so beautiful that I want to mary her. (It is correct)
    She is such a beautiful girl that I want to marry her. (It is correct)

    But,

    1)She is a girl so beautiful that I want to mary her.

    2)She is so beautiful a girl that I want to mary her.

    Can we use 'so that' like this?
    Thank you

    * Not a teacher

    Yes. You can use it like that. It's a more classic/formal/old way.

    so + adjective + article + noun

    Of course, eliff. Meanwhile, read this topic:

    A teacher and I were discussing some issues (including this one).

    You could, but it would be extremely uncommon. I'd advise you not to.
