There's a part of a dialogue in a movie I saw:
If the patient who killed herself in this room, in this very tub, is here now, make yourself known.
I've looked up the definition of very (adjective) in Oxford dictionary; it's used to emphasize a noun. Is it possibly the other way to say the exact/precise place that the speaker's talking about?
For example, the word very, am I using it correctly in these sentences below?:
- She sat in this very chair last night.
- I will sleep on this very bed.
- There was a man standing on this very bench.
