I voted to close How to convey in Spanish "That is flattering" with positive connotations? because there aren't any sample sentences with a blank where the word would go, to show us how to use the word. But next to the "close" link, there's no


which I'd expect to see.

I can't vote to close because the system says I voted to close too recently.

Am I doing something wrong?

  • While that question doesn't have "sample sentences with a blank where the word would go", it has sample sentences including the original word. There's 3 examples using the word we are trying to look for an equivalent in Spanish. Why would those not work to illustrate the same as the sample sentences with the blank?

  • @Diego - I wouldn't necessarily use the same word in those three examples. They're actually pretty different. Sometimes when trying to go from one language to another, one needs to use a work-around. It's incredibly helpful to understand in what situation exactly you're feeling a gap in your ability to express something equivalent to "flattering" in your other main language.
