Note: Very is sometimes used to make the word with which it

same, self-same, itself, and the like. "The very hand,
the very words." --Shak. "The very rats instinctively
have quit it." --Shak. "Yea, there where very
desolation dwells." --Milton. Very is used occasionally
in the comparative degree, and more frequently in the
superlative. "Was not my lord the verier wag of the
two?" --Shak. "The veriest hermit in the nation."
