An EXCLAMATION expresses a strong feeling, an acute emotion, that you want to make other people share or at least understand.
There are different ways to build an exclamative clause: if the exclamative is related to a NOMINAL GROUP (determiner+ noun+ adjective) or to an ADJECTIVE (or an adverb).
1) Nominal Group: => WHAT+ determiner (+ adjective) + noun ( + verbal group) ! // Verbal Group+ SUCH + determiner (+ adjective) + noun.
- What a lovely girl (she is)!= She is such a lovely girl! (countable in the singular).
- What silly boys (they are)!= They're such silly boys! (countable in the plural).
- What terrible weather! It's such terrible weather! (uncountable)
2) ADJECTIVE and adverb: HOW + adjective/ adverb (+ verbal group) ! // Verbal group + SO = adjective/ adverb.
- How exciting (it was)!= It was so exciting!
- How fast you run!= You run so fast!
Quite easy, isn't it? Come on, try the test!
