КУДА́ as an intensifier of comparatives

КУДА́ as an intensifier of comparatives

Dec 27, 2022

Dear friends 👋, this post is about the word «куда́» in its role of an intensifier for adjectives and adverbs used in their comparative degree. Probably, you already know other intensifiers like «гора́здо», «значи́тельно», «намно́го» (considerably, significantly, much, far) going with comparatives. The word «куда́» (being an adverb here) can perform the same function, i.e. can be used to emphasize adjectives or other adverbs in their comparative degree.

For example: Он куда́ опа́снее, чем любо́й друго́й ви́рус. (It is much more dangerous than any other virus.)

Please, look at some examples of its usage in this video:

Thank you.
