absolutely (adjective)

You can use the word "absolutely" to strengthen an adjective that already sounds strong:

I was absolutely exhausted.

It was absolutely disgusting.

Note that if an adjective isn't already strong, you can't use "absolutely" with it. So "I'm absolutely tired" would be strange, while "absolutely exhausted" is OK. "It was absolutely big" is strange, but this works:

It was absolutely enormous.
