Am I wrong in thinking it's wrong?
I know language evolves and teenagers like to put their own spin on it, but one thing that has particularly bugged me is when my daughters and their friends say: 'It's so fun.'
Now that very phrase is being bandied about on a TV advert. The very shock of it!
There must be logic to why it's wrong. Or am I wrong in thinking it's wrong?
Fun is an abstract noun and an adjective. (We had fun. It was a fun time.)
Great is an adjective.
We can say 'It was fun' or 'It was great'.
We can say 'so great' so why is it correct to say 'such fun' rather than 'so fun'?
Sorry if that's all a bit convoluted...
