Are the rules regarding absolute modifiers too absolute?
Reading the sentence below, written on The Telegraph, it can notice the phrase quite unique.
I never imagined a situation when I would write this line, but I think I need the help of a Welsh speaker. There is something quite unique happening with the Wales team and I need a name for it.
Considering that unique, from the Latin for one, means "being the only one of a kind", does it need to change quite unique with the only term unique or, maybe, with the phrase almost unique?
Or, is quite unique acceptable to use for native English speaker?
