Consider the following sentences
I am definitely very hungry
I am definitely a hungry person
I am definitely hungry
I am always hungry
I’m unsure of how to tell what these adverbs modify. Do these adverbs of certainty/frequency modify the verb “to be” or the adjective “hungry?”
Does “definitely” modify “very hungry” in the first sentence?
In the second sentence, I added a noun phrase- does that change anything?
The adverb “definitely” must modify the verb “to be”; does that mean “definitely” also modifies “to be” in the sentences with adjectives?
Is this sentence correct?
“The definitely hungry boy get something to eat.”
