In English, and most modern European languages, we have one single word, "very," which is accepted as the regular way to make an adjective more extreme. Is there a common way to do this in Latin? Ways I can think of are just using the superlative, or using some adjective like nimis, multum or magnopere.
E.g. (something) is very cold: maybe est frigidissimus, est multum frigidus or est nimis frigidus?
But what I'm really interested in is whether there's a "regular" way of doing this. Perhaps different ways were idiomatic in different eras.
This is not the same sort of emphasis as moving the adjective to the start of the sentence — that emphasizes the importance of the word, whereas I want to change the meaning of it, make it more extreme.
