How to Intensify a Turkish Adjective

Replace the initial letter of the adjective with one of the letters p,r,s,m. This method is used in normal conversation by the speaker. There are some exceptions paramparça, çirilçiplak, etc.. This replacement has no rule; it is the choice of which letter sounds better in general conversation.

They are in constant use both in daily conversation, newspapers and periodicals, plus stories and novels. It is a way that language colours itself. This type of usage is very common in daily reading, listening and conversation.
