I have a question about the usage of the pronoun "those" with the pronoun "of yours" like in this sentence:

The only one who knows "those" worst secrets of yours is me.

I know that if I used only "those secrets of yours" it would be correct. But with the superlative adjective "worst", is it still correct, acceptable, or even beautiful to speak that?

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.


Welcome to the site. Adding the superlative does not really change the underlying grammar of the sentence. Even with the superlative, the sentence is still correct and acceptable. Whether it is "beautiful" or not is a matter of taste, and beyond the scope of this site.
