Too…to… | Conversational Structures

The structure too… to… shows undesirable excess and has a kind of negative meaning.

  • She was too tired to walk.
  • This is too good to be true.
  • The coffee is too hot for me to drink.
  • The boy has too little intelligence to understand this.
  • His behaviour was too impudent for me to tolerate.
  • He has become too much of a nuisance to put up with.
Notes

‘She was too tired to walk’ means ‘She was so tired that she could not walk’.
