Intensifiers: enough, too

2. Meaning and use

We use enough and too to indicate degree. Too means more than necessary, and enough indicates the right amount of something.

 £150! That’s much too expensive for a pair of shoes.

We’ll have to buy a bigger car. This one’s not big enough for all of us.

We can also use too with much and many to talk about the amount of something. Too much/many means more than we want or need of something.

There are just too many cars on the roads these days.
