とても___ない vs. 到底とうてい___ない: Which is More Stronger?

What is the difference between “とても___ない and 到底とうてい___ない: “? How do native speakers use these words depending on what the situations are? After reading this, you would be answering this question. Let me introduce what their subtle differences are and how you correctly use them such as native speakers today!




[wp-svg-icons icon=”checkmark-circle” wrap=”i”] とても___ない / 到底とうてい___ない

[wp-svg-icons icon=”arrow-right-2″ wrap=”span”] Be impossible to ___ , I definitely can’t ___ , too ___ to, definitely, etc / 完全没___, 到底是没有 / 매우 ___ 없다, 도저히 ___ 없다 / Hoàn toàn không ___, Không thể nào mà___

“とても___ない and 到底とうてい___ない” mean “Be impossible to ___, I definitely can’t ___, too ___ to, etc” and which has been used as the meaning of “something is extremely difficult to deal with or solve”. The basic way to use it is “AはとてもBなので、___ない。(A is so B that I definitely can’t ___. / A is too B for me to ___)”, “Aは(とても)Bなので、到底とうてい___(そうに)ない。(A is so B that I definitely can’t ___. / A is too B for me to ___)”, etc. For instance, “このくるまはとてもたかいので、えない。(This car is so expensive that I definitely can’t buy it.)”, “このくるまはとてもたかいので、到底とうていえそうにない。(This car is so expensive that I definitely can’t buy it.)”, etc. The tips for using them are that “とても___ない” is used as “a STRONG sense of impossibility”, and “到底とうてい___ない” is used as “a VERY STRONG sense of impossibility”, so “到底とうてい___ない” is the stronger meaning than “とても___ない” and it is also used as a little bit formal than “とても___ない”. Additionally, some leaners use “とてもからない。” which sounds pretty weird for us in daily conversations. What I mean is that “到底とうてい” is used as an adverb and “とても” is used an adjective such as “とてもむずかしいのでからない。(It’s too difficult for me to understand.)”, so you could use “到底とうていからない。(I definitely don’t know.)” which sounds better than “とてもからない。” and if you want to say it more casual than “到底とうていからない。(I definitely don’t understand.)”, that would be “全然ぜんぜんからない。(I don’t know at all.)”. Lastly, when native speakers use “到底とうてい“, we tend to use “到底とうてい___そうもない。” means “It seem/look like I definitely can’t ___.)” such as “到底とうていそうもない。(It seem like I definitely can’t buy it.)”. For your information, “とても” is pretty formal and a little weird in daily conversations for us like a writing word, so “かなり”, だいぶ, “ちょう“, etc are natural in daily conversations as casual.
