I'm pretty sure.
It's pretty sweet.
And what exactly pretty means ? How to use it ? I need your help in this..
pretty O.E. prættig (W.Saxon), *prettig (Mercian) "cunning, skillful, artful," from prætt, *prett "a trick, wile, craft," from W.Gmc. *pratt- (cf. O.N. prettr "a trick," prettugr "tricky;" Fris. pret, M.Du. perte, Du. pret "trick, joke," Du. prettig "sportive, funny," Flem. pertig "brisk, clever"). Connection between O.E. and M.E. words is uncertain, but if they are the same, meaning had shifted by c.1400 to "manly, gallant," and later moved via "attractive, skillfully made," to "fine," to "beautiful in a slight way" (1440). For sense evolution, compare nice, silly. Used to qualify adjectives and adverbs ("moderately") since 1565. As a verb (usually with up) it is attested from 1916. Prettily is from c.1400; prettify first recorded 1850. Pretty-boy is attested from 1885. A pretty penny "lot of money" is first recorded 1768.
'How sure was he?'
'Pretty sure. He says he just needs another £100...'
'That's not good enough. He will have to be not just pretty sure, but very sure - in fact, absolutely certain - before I invest another penny.'
Also, hehe needs to be aware that "pretty" can be used to intensify more than just adjectives:
'Is that everything?'
