Introduction

Prilozi [adverbs] su riječi koje funkcioniraju kao modifikatori rečenica i rečeničnih dijelova. Pružaju širok spektar informacija.

Prilozi stupnja [adverbs of degree] osiguravaju informaciju o intenzitetu radnje ili pridjeva {vidi Adverbs of Degree, A1 Level}.

Pojačivaći [intensifiers] i ublaživaći [mitigators] se koriste s prilozima stupnja.

  • He was so helpful.
  • The view is utterly beautiful.

  • The view was pretty good, but not breathtaking.
  • I’m rather bored.
  • It is slightly expensive, but I’m still going to buy it.

Pojačivaći se koriste kad želimo naglasiti značenje neke riječi.

Ublaživaći se koriste kad želimo ublažiti značenje neke riječi.

Summary

Pojačivaći [intensifiers] i ublaživaći [mitigators] su dva oblika priloga stupnja.  Pojačivaći se koriste za naglašavanje riječi ili radnje, a ublaživaći za ublažavanje.

Najčešći pojačivaćihighly, absolutely, so, incredibly, utterly, particularly

Najčešći ublaživaći: fairly, pretty, rather, slightly

Naprimjer:
— “I am absolutely sure he is lying.” = Postoji visoka šansa da laže pa koristimo pojačivaće.
— “I am fairly sure that he is lying.” = Mala je vjerojatnost da laže pa koristimo ublaživaće.
