this is the new sentence:
I was very delighted to see my name on the list.[/QUOTE]
The mistake is the intesifier (very ) ,,, the right sentence should be ( I was absolutely delighted to see my name on the list.)
The reason is : We do not use very or extremely before adjectives which contain " very" as part of their meaning , e.g. delighted ,( very pleased) , enormous ( very big ) , exhuasted ( very tired) , soacked ( very wet ) ,, filthy ( very dirty )... etc
If we want to intesify these adjectives , we use absolutely or completely .
