What is the difference between 'He is a loner' and 'He is very much a loner'?  Thanks.

Hi, Kuen,

"He is very much a loner" is simply an emphatic version of "He is a loner."

The version with "very much" sounds very strange outside of context.

Here is a context in which the version with "very much" would work:

A: Is he a loner?

B: Oh, yes! He is very much a loner.
