It is an adverb. See explanation.


An adjective modifies a noun.


I read an interesting book yesterday.

In this sentence word interesting modifies the noun book, so it is an adjective.

An adverb can modify either a verb or an adjective.


  • an adverb modifying a verb: I went quickly to the kitchen. - Adverb quickly modifies the verb went.

  • an adverb modifying an adjective: The book was so boring, that I fell asleep just after a few pages. - the adverb so modifies the adjective boring.

In the given sentence word so modifies the adjective fabulous, therfore it is an adverb.
