Can I say “sore” in front of an adjective? Like, “I’m sore happy.”
In this scene, the speaker (Linus) is quoting a verse from the King James Version of the Bible. This version of The Bible was written in the early 1600s in England, and therefore has a speech that is not used anymore. Therefore, "sore" in this context (which means "very") is not used in modern English, and would not be put in front of an adjective.
