: I'd like to know how to discover when a adjective
or adverb is gradable or non-gradable, without having to know a large list by
heart. Can anybody help me?
I don't understand the question? Do you mean gradable as in degrees -- "pretty, prettier, prettiest"? Or non-gradable meaning an absolute --"unique"? Something is unique or it's not.
