‘Such’ comes BEFORE nouns

[Tweet “‘Such’ comes BEFORE nouns: Such good weather!”]

  • Such good weather (weather is a noun)
  • Such happy people
  • Such a lovely day
  • Such a pretty woman

‘So’ comes AFTER nouns

[Tweet “‘So’ comes AFTER nouns: The weather is so good!”]

  • The weather is so good
  • The people are so happy
  • The day is so lovely
  • The woman is so pretty

Both structures can be followed by ‘that’ 

  • The day is so lovely, that we’ve decided to go out.
  • It’s such a lovely day, that we’ve decided to go out.
