    "так" и "такой"

    Привет.
    Вы можете мне объяснить разница между "так" и "такой" with the use of examples. In my mind both mean such or so. For example:
    1. Иногда я так устаю что игнорирую будильник и продолжаю спать = Sometimes I get so tired that I ignore alarm and continue to sleep
    2. Он такой умный что он может понять все = He is so clever that he can understand everything.
    3. Oн такой умный человек что он может понять все = He is such a clever person that he can understand everything.

    The only difference between these words is which part of speech they are. Так is an adverb, so it describes a verb. Такой is an adjective, so it describes a noun, pronoun.

    Let's take a closer look at your examples:

    Иногда я так устаю что игнорирую будильник и продолжаю спать. Уставать is a verb and так describes the verb.
    Он такой умный что он может понять все - Такой is an adjective. Он is a pronoun and такой describes the pronoun

    Another examples:

    Я так люблю играть в футбол - (I love to play football so much) Любить is a verb, так is an adverb that describes the verb.
    Такой прекрасный вид - (Such a beautiful view) Вид is a noun, and такой is an adjective that describes the noun

    I hope that helps

    If you've spotted any mistake in my English, please, correct it. I want to be aware of any mistakes to efficiently eliminate them before they become a habit.

    iCake you helped a lot now everything is 100% clear.

    I just have one question based on the examples I wrote:
    2. Он такой умный что он может понять все = He is so clever that he can understand everything.
    3. Oн такой умный человек что он может понять все = He is such a clever person that he can understand everything.

    In this case такой, which as you mentioned an adjective, means both "such" and "so" in the English translation? Correct?

    Он такой умный что он может понять все
    Another variation would be
    Он так умён, что он может понять всё. (a little bit more formal)
    I think it's always "так" with short adjectives.

    так is an adverb. That is it attributes verbs and short adjectives/participles (predicates).
    такой is a pronoun replacing adjective. That is it attributes subjects and objects (nouns etc.).
    "Россия для русских" - это неправильно. Остальные-то чем лучше?
