Question: Hi there. I've studying English for a long time, but there are some structures that I still don't understand. 1. When they say "I'm so in need of helpĀ”", is it good grammar? And if so, the use of the "so" in the sentence is in order to give it more importance or like to exaggerate it? (Sorry for the cacophony) By the way, this is not homework, I'm a self-taught person, don't need other people to do my own homework. Thanks in advance. *been Thank you to those two people who answered. So I guess the same thing happens when you say "I'm so not in the mood of talking to anyone". It's the same thing as saying "I don't want to talk to anyone" but bit stronger. However thank you, specially to Randy.

Yes, you're correct. 'so' is used as a modifier and stresses or emphasizes the degree to which the person needs help. :)

Actually either will do, you just need to give credit to the source. The same goes for a book title, you can put the title in quotations, italics, or underline it. Any of the following are correct ways according to the MLA formatting style guide for writing essays. Although the following refers to books, or movies, the formatting style is consistent with what should be used for a song title as well. Use quotation marks and underlining or italics when referring to other works in your title, just as you would in your text. http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/557/01/

It's a very common expression and I believe it's correct grammar as well. "So" used this way means "very much". Other examples: "I'm so tired, we're so lost, this is so confusing." Those are stronger than just saying "I'm tired, we're lost, this is confusing." "In need of help" is being treated as an adjective in the same way as tired, lost and confusing in those examples. A similar expression is "so [adjective] that [result]". "I'm so tired that I'm about to fall asleep standing up". You don't need the result part, you can just say "I'm so [adjective]". There's an old joke pattern that uses both versions. Comedian: He is so ugly. Audience (all together): How ugly is he? Comedian: He is so ugly that when he was born, the doctor spanked his mother.

I believe the use of "so" in this phrase is in order to exaggerate the phrase, that is, to state that the subject is desperately in need of help versus slightly being in need of help.

I don't think 'so' sounds right in this sentence. I would say "I really need help", or "i'm really in need of help". :)
