a quick and slightly irrelevant question but what is the difference between 'the movie was so long' and 'the movie was very long'?
Your English Web
Hi, 'very' is used for new information: the movie was very long - the person you are speaking to didn't know it; 'so' is used when the information is already known: Did you like the movie? Yes, but it was so long. 'So' can mean 'very' when you want to emphasise, e.g. You are so intelligent. Hope it clears up the doubt.
