    How + adjectives ....

    HOW is an adverb which has many possibilities. First, it can modify the meaning of several sorts of words. Today, we'll learn the different meanings it can have when it modifies an adjective, or an adverb.




    How old ...? 

    1) To indicate a degree, a quantity, an age , some dimensions...

    ➡️ deep => the depth => how deep?

    ➡️ heavy =>  how heavy? 

    ➡️ high => the height -> how high? 

    ➡️ far =>  how far? 

    ➡️ fast => quick => how fast? 

    ➡️ many + countables => how many? 

    ➡️ much + uncountables => how much?  

    ➡️ old = aged => how old?  

    ➡️ often => how often?                                                                                                           

    ➡️ wide => the width => how wide?

    2) It may also be used with  all the adjectives: clear-sighted - important - lazy - good - hard - difficult - tiring - tired - ....

    ➡️ 'How clear-sighted he is!...  = 'He's so clear-sighted! '

    ➡️ 'How lazy this boy is!...' = 'This boy is so lazy ...'

    3) Used with an adjective or an adverb, HOW can introduce an exclamative form ('How tired you are!') or an interrogative form : 'How tired are you?' Of course, the order of the words (subject + verb or verb subject ) is then what will guide you!
