    Intensifiers (adjectives)

    The function of the intensifier is exactly what the term implies, it makes the adjective more intense or extreme. The use of these intensifiers is idiomatic and should therefore be learnt by heart.

    Example: Michael is bone idle. He gets up at 11.00, refuses to do any housework and hangs around the house doing nothing!

    The word bone collocates with the adjective idle to express the idea that Michael is extremely lazy.
