I've seen many people put an extra "DO" in a sentence. I know it's for emphasis, but is there an official name for it?
For example: "I like her" is perfectly correct, yet "I DO like her" is also pretty common.
One of my students asked me this and I just said it's for emphasis, but I can't figure out whether it's just colloquial usage or if there's an official rule for it.
