  • ‘And what about verbs? You’ll be pleased to hear that this is more straightforward. When quite comes before a verb, it emphasizes it. If I say, I quite understand, it means I ‘fully understand’. Here, quite tells us that some state or process is complete.’
    This is over-simplified: I quite enjoyed the film means that I found it fairly enjoyable; I quite like your sister means that I find her fairly agreeable.

  • Thank you for your comment, Simon. You are right, of course, the examples you quote mean just that. This is why we welcome comments such as this one that add to the topics covered in the posts.
