Re: Grammar: "So" as a modifier
Another interesting grammatical conversation came up today. This time we discussed "so" as a modifier. For example, "We are so lost" (instead of "very?) or "That is so an inconvenience" (instead of "such"?). I commented that this usage was incorrect, but really can't back it up with a grammatical rule.
So, I'm just looking for a simple rule-of-thumb I can share with my grammatically handicapped peers.
