    Witam.

    W książce Total English Pre-intermediate, na stronie 69, pokazano cztery typy dłoni. (W lekcji mowa jest o astrologii, chiromancji i grafologii.)
    Podzielono je na dwie grupy:
    1. ze względu na to czy są szorstkie czy gładkie (texture of hands):
    a) soft hands - miękkie, delikatne?
    b) hard hands - twarde, ciężkie?
    2. ze względu na ich kształt (shape of hands):
    a) pointed hands - szpiczaste?
    b) square hands - kwadratowe?

    Zastanawiam się jak te określenia poprawnie przetłumaczyć na język polski.

    Dziękuję za artykuł i za ciekawy komentarz.

    Tekst z podręcznika zawiera taki sam opis jak poniżej:
    SOFT HANDS • Soft hands can mean that the person is calm but sometimes rather lazy. They are often not very ambitious.
    HARD HANDS • People with hard hands sometimes get angry easily. They are often very ambitious and energetic.
    POINTED HANDS • This means the person is artistic, sensitive, and kind. Often these people work with fashion or hairdressing.
    SQUARE HANDS • People with square hands are usually hard working, organized and reliable. They are often good with money and business.

    Hi, Wolf. Is that some kind of astrology stuff? Soft hands are hands with soft skin. Hard hands are hands with thick skin, perhaps rough. I have never heard about pointed hands -- they might be something like pianist have , but they are usually not described this way in more conventional sources. Square hands -- are just hands the palms of which are square in shape, nothing more than that.

    In fact, it is palmistry. And the topic of the lesson is describing someone's personality.
    You can find a good example of your description if you google: Fist bump with hard and soft hands

    Thank you for your comment . :)
