A wrong error in Grammarly


The Grammarly told me that "it's really fun" is not correct, and I should change the position of "really". I think it's wrong because "is" is an auxiliary verb.

I think Grammarly is confused because 'really' can also mean 'in reality; truly', not only as an intensifier.


See this example:


"Is she really happy?" which, in this case, does not mean "Is she very happy?"


If you are using 'really' in the more colloquial sense, as an intensifier for 'fun', you have used it correctly.
