Student or Learner
This morning I had a very quick look at a grammar book (Oxford or Longman, I don't remember) which said that much (in "much nicer"), a little (in "a little tired"? I can't remember the example exactly) and other expressions (I can't remember which) were adverbs of degree whether I thought they could only be adjectives, i.e., quantifiers. Could you tell me more about this, please? Other than the usual intensifiers I know (so, too, enough, fairly, rather, quite, such, very, really) which are the words/expressions that are considered as adverbs of degree ? I'm not talking about the usual adverbs such as completely, extremely, totally, etc., but are these called intensifiers too?
All the best,
Adverbs modify adjectives, so they would be adverbs in these examples.
