it v-link ADJ that

The 'marvellous' group

These adjectives indicate that the event or situation indicated by the that-clause is a good or desirable one. They include:
    words with a general meaning e.g. brilliant, fantastic, marvellous
    words with a specific meaning e.g. appropriate, equitable, logical
    words that describe the effect it has on someone e.g. encouraging, exciting, reassuring
This is a productive use: any adjective that means 'good' or 'desirable' can be used in this pattern. We show below the most frequent.
