-ísimo (un poco ayuda, por favor)

Si me pongo aburrido usando "muy" todo día, ¿puedo dicer "Es facilísimo"?

-So you drop "muy" and add "-ísimo" to convey very? ¿lo entiendo correctament? (trying to say "Am I understanding it correctly" (sorry)

Espero que por usando "-ísimo" en vez de "muy", no sonaré como un gringo

Muchos gracias por tu AYuda!! Me ayuda!

I think it is called superlative.

However, some people will use the form that poli has heard, and it is wrong.

It was even made famous to talk like that by a fine humorist, Roberto Gomez Bolaños, in the 70's. :-)

You are right.

You can say. Estoy aburridisimo.

Other example about it.

It's so easy.

Eso es facilicimo.

You can use the Isimo as complement in some verb.
