Creating an emphatic expression involves adding an adv-verb to your existing sentence or phrase to make your feelings even stronger. In an emphatic sentence, the adverb-intensifier is always added before the verb. The most common emphatic amplifiers in English (in my opinion) are “really” and “a lot.” I`m sure you`ve heard that people often use these words, in fact I used one in the title of this article. @ashley Hello Ashley, I`m glad you enjoy the blog and I hope this post was especially helpful. With regard to other proposals to emphasize mood, as an excuse, much of the mood is transposed into a sentence by bending and tone. For example, the same words could be used to express sincere apologies and sarcasm, but the tone of the person`s voice would be different. Here`s an example that uses the word “so” to create a pressing apology: “I`m really sorry.” Depending on the tone, this might seem sincere or sarcastic. I think the sincerity of your sentences is conveyed more by sound than by words. I hope it helps.
