  • Hello and welcome to today's Grammar Gameshow!

  • I'm your host, Will!

  • It rhymes with thrill!

  • And of course, let's not forget Leslie,

  • our all-knowing voice in the sky.

  • Hello everyone!

  • Tonight we're going to ask you three questions about

  • 'So' and 'such'!

  • Those two little intensifiers

  • that allow us to modify adjectives and nouns!

  • OK! Now, let's meet our contestants!

  • Hi all. My name's Mark!

  • And contestant number two?

  • It's nice to meet you. I'm Selene!

  • It's nice to meet you Mark.

  • Ohthanks.

  • It's nice to meet you too.

  • I love your blouse.

  • Oh thanks!

  • It's really

  • kind of you to say.

  • Yes, yesalright.

  • Enough fraternising.

  • Nice to see you again Mark.

  • OK. Let's get going and don't forget

  • you can play along at home too.

  • Our first round is a find-the-mistake round.

  • Look at these sentences

  • and tell me why they are incorrect!

  • How was your holiday?

  • It was such sunny!

  • It was so a sunny place!

  • Oh...

  • I'm sorry

  • after you.

  • No, no, no, no... after you.

  • Noafter you.

  • Good grief!

  • Mark. It was you.

  • They're the wrong way around.

  • Don't we use 'so' with adjectives

  • and 'such' with noun phrases?

  • Leslie?

  • Well done!

  • We can use 'so' and 'such'

  • to emphasise something that we are talking about.

  • We use 'so' to emphasise an adjective

  • and 'such' to emphasise a noun phrase.

  • It was so sunny.

  • It was such a sunny place.

  • Good job. Here's a bonus question:

  • If the thing we emphasise using 'so' and 'such'

  • causes a reaction, what structure do we need to add?

  • We use a 'that' clause.

  • Leslie?

  • Absolutely right!

  • We can add a 'that' clause to a 'so' or 'such' phrase

  • to say that the thing we are emphasising

  • is the reason that something happened!

  • Well done, Selene.

  • OK. It's time for a quick-fire round.

  • Complete these 'so' and 'such' phrases

  • with a 'that' clause.

  • The day was so sad

  • that I couldn't believe it when I met Mark.

  • Correct!

  • She's such a kind person...

  • that you can always ask her for help.

  • Correct!

  • Yesquite.

  • I met someone so attractive

  • that I can't resist how I feel.

  • Correct!

  • Focus on the game, please!

  • There was such chemistry

  • that I couldn't control myself.

  • Correct.

  • Alright, stop it now.

  • You're making everyone ill!

  • Two points each.

  • OK. On to our second round.

  • How can we use 'so' and 'such'

  • to emphasise a great quantity of something?

  • Please, after you

  • I couldn't possibly...

  • As if I could go before you, Selene.

  • Selene!

  • We combine them with 'much' and 'many'.

  • How about an example?

  • Selene has such many points that I could never win.

  • That answer was totally wrong.

  • Was it?

  • I'm sorry I seem to have lost focus.

  • Stop it!

  • Leslie?

  • When we want to emphasise the quantity of something

  • we can combine 'so' with 'much' or 'many'.

  • 'Much' is used for uncountable nouns

  • - so much love -

  • and 'many' is used for countable nouns

  • - so many hugs.

  • However, we cannot combine 'such'

  • with either 'much' or 'many'.

  • That form does not exist.

  • Alright loverboy.

  • Minus eight points to you.

  • Mark!

  • Selene!

  • Oi!

  • Look at me!

  • On to our last question.

  • Look at these two short dialogues

  • and tell me what the difference is between 'so',

  • 'such' and 'very'.

  • You are very late.

  • I'm sorry I'm so late. I missed the bus.

  • We had a very good time.

  • Why do you think you had such a good time?

  • Oh, third time! I'm sorry.

  • It must be destiny.

  • You're making the audience sick!

  • Selene, you go!

  • Well,

  • all three are being used to emphasise something, so...

  • I'm not sure.

  • Maybe Marky knows...

  • he's so clever.

  • His name's Mark!

  • Thanks Seleney.

  • In the first line of each dialogue,

  • the speaker introduces a new idea.

  • In the second, the person emphasises the same idea

  • so it's something to do with new information

  • and known information.

  • Leslie?

  • Well done

  • Marky.

  • 'So', 'such' and 'very' can emphasise,

  • but we usually use 'very' when giving new information

  • and 'so' or 'such' to emphasise information

  • that is already known.

  • Well done. Have seven points between you.

  • Oh, no. You can have them Selene.

  • No, you can have them Mark.

  • No, you.

  • No, you.

  • Oh, let it end already.

  • Well, that brings us to the end of today's

  • Grammar Gameshow.

  • Let's count out the points.

  • And the winner is

  • up to you.

  • Mark...

  • Selene

  • one of you has to lose.

  • Who's it going to be?

  • I'll lose

  • let her win.

  • No

  • Mark you can't!

  • My darling

  • It's a far better thing I do,

  • than I have ever done before.

  • Alright.

  • You chose.

  • Watch out for the elephants!

  • It looks like we'll need another contestant.

  • And Selene, well done to you.

  • Here's what you've won.

  • It's a tandem bicycle!

  • Perfect for taking long rides with your lover.

  • I'll never love again!

  • We'll see you again next week,

  • where you can play for another prize.

  • Thanks for joining us.

  • Say goodbye, Leslie.

  • Ciao, Leslie

  • See you next time.

  • Wave Selene.

  • Wave and smile!
