The word sehr is commonly used in spoken and written German language. It is one of the most frequently used adverbs in the language and can be found in various contexts. For instance, it can be used to describe emotions, physical sensations, opinions, and many other things.

In German grammar, sehr is considered as a degree adverb that modifies the intensity of an adjective or adverb. It usually comes before the word it modifies and does not change its form. For example, 'sehr gut' means 'very good', while 'sehr schnell' means 'very fast'.

It is important to note that sehr is not the only way to express intensity in German language. Other degree adverbs such as extrem, unglaublich, wahnsinnig, etc., can also be used depending on the context and the speaker's preference.
