Common Mistake: Comma in 'very very good'

When it comes to using intensifiers like "very" or "really" to emphasize the degree or intensity of an adjective, it is important to use them correctly. However, one common mistake that many people make is using multiple intensifiers without any separation, particularly when they are placed before an adjective.

Incorrect Usage:

  • She is a veryvery good singer.

In the example above, the word "very" is repeated twice without any punctuation or separation. This can make the sentence confusing and awkward to read. While the intention is to emphasize the greatness of the singer, it ends up creating a grammatical error instead.

Correct Usage:

  • She is a very, very good singer.

In order to correct this mistake, it is important to add a comma between the repeated intensifiers. This helps to clearly separate them and indicate that they are working together to modify the adjective "good". The comma acts as a visual cue for the reader to pause and recognize the intended emphasis.
