Reply to "So or such"

Thank you both.

That's an interesting point, Yama. It is true that adjectives are usually preceded by "such" in that kind of constructions, for example:

  • There were such beautiful girls around he couldn't avoid gazing at them.

Now, why does "few" take "so" and not "such"? Because it is not an adjective, but a determiner that indicates quantity, like little, many, much."


According to what I know, "such"  doesn't need to be followed by an adjective. It can be followed by a (noun) as in this sentence:


* She had such beauty that everyone was attracted to her.


If this is true, why can't we use such? I mean, it's followed by " people ".
