    Re: extremely

    Please write a complete sentence.

    What have you learnt about these words from sample sentences in dictionaries?

    Re: extremely

    I have looked up "extremely" in different dictionaries. There's "very" for "extremely".

    No complete sentence. I just made this question.

    Re: extremely

    Then you have answered your own question.

    Though to be fair, and as you might have found in another dictionary, 'so', with emphasis and in the right context, can mean 'very'.

    so
    adv.

    1. ...
    2. (Informal) very or extremely: I'm so happy.
