How can I indicate that the manner, nature or degree of something influences another thing? Examples:
It is so big that I cannot fit it in my mouth.
He makes cookies such that one wonders what is in them.
He makes such cookies that one wonders what is in them.
We can also use this construction to say that the manner of an action caused something:
He is laughing so hard that milk is coming out his nose.
To clarify the second and third, let me emphasize that it is not necessarily his intention to make such cookies; he makes cookies, and the nature of those cookies causes people to wonder what is in those cookies. In other words, the meaning of the second would be very much altered if "so" were substituted for "such". And the third would sound like nonsense with "so" substituted for "such".
