Could we use "even" or "net" (or is it "even zo" or "net zo") instead of "zo"? :)

You can use 'even', 'net', 'net zo', 'precies', and 'precies zo'. :)

Nice. :) Or just 'zo', as in the original sentence. But 'even zo' is wrong. Big question: Are there any major differences between these alternatives or are they really just synonyms?

Why not "warm" instead of "heet"?

Warm is not as hot as hot. :) From cold to hot:

  • koud = cold
  • lauw = lukewarm
  • warm = warm
  • heet = hot

You are right. Heet is more helpful than saying erg of zeer warm.
