After reading the comments in this question, I wanted to clarify whether a certain proposed usage of tam is appropriate. In it, tam was proposed as an emphatic alternative to sic, when correlated with ut, e.g.:
Tam enim eam amabam ut omnia ei darem.
For I loved her so much that I gave her everything.
(If this was not the proposed construction, please let me know!)
My question: Can tam be correlated with ut in this way? Seeing tam used "alone" with a verb strikes me as strange: I am used to seeing it used with an adjective or adverb ("tam bonus sum") and/or correlated with quam.
