Intensifiers are adverbial phrases that intensify or strengthens the meaning of other expressions or show emphasis.

Know about Intensifier: Enough

There’s enough love to go around

The Intensifier “enough” expresses that there’s the right amount of something. When there’s enough, there’s not too much and not too little.

For instance, you’re at a cafe and a waitress says to you,

“Is there enough cream in your coffee?” 

She isn’t asking if there is cream in your coffee, she knows there is. The waitress wants to know if there is the right amount of cream in your coffee. The Intensifier “enough” seeks to find out if something is just right.
