    Maaf banget Dhita baru balas 🙁

    Dari referensi yang saya baca sih padanannya very:

    degree: very
    synonim: extremely, really, remarkably, surprisingly, truly, downright, mighty, quite, rather, so, very, wonderfully

    rather/quite especially British English more than a little, but less than very. British people often use these words before adjectives in conversation.

    a little too much, or to a degree that is slightly too great

    tapi memang ada juga yang bilang makanya somewhat:

    to a noticeable degree; somewhat
