Can I use "very" in following way ? " I very want to play tennis. "
I have read " I want to play tennis very much. " but I think previous sentence is correct, too. What do you think?
No, I don't think so. 'Very', as an intensifier, can be used before adjectives and adverbs. 'Very much' can be used as an adverb (mid-position or end-position).
- I very much like tennis.
You can also use 'very' as an adjective. Here's an example:
- Playing tennis is the very thing I want right now.
