Reply to "Very wonderful"

Hi, Behzad, and welcome to the Grammar Exchange.

The post you responded to dates from more than ten years ago. Anyway, I'd like to make a comment on what you wrote. "Extreme" adjectives are usually referred to as non-gradable adjectives in grammar, and I agree that, in general, they don't take intensifiers indicating their degree. However, they are sometimes reinforced or emphasized by adverbs like "really" or "truly."
