Excerpt from Strengthening Modifiers of Adjectives and Adverbs in Middle High German: A Dissertation Presented to the Board of University Studies of the Johns Hopkins University for the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy

In the German language Of all periods, there has been a class of words, usually the most common adverbs, which in addition to their usual Office have assumed the special function of serving as strengtheners of adjectives and other adverbs. This special function may amount in some cases to an entirely new use of the word, from which the original meaning or color has been wholly obliterated. Compare for example Modern German sehr, or Middle High German oil. In others, some trace Of the original force of the words may be retained, as in Mod. Germ. Gar or recht, mhg harte. TO this class Of words in general the term strengthening modifier, or strengthening particle may be applied.

All such usage is in origin metaphorical. A word standing for a definite adverbial notion is applied to an adjective or an adverb for the purpose of emphasizing the quality which it expresses; in other words, the attribute of one class of ideas is asserted of another. If it is applied often enough, so that we forget that the strengthening word has any special significance Of its own, the figure loses its force, or color, and the result is a faded metaphor. Strengthening particles then, as applied to the words they modify, are examples of faded metaphors.
