I'm not an native English speaker and just talked on the phone with my bf who's american. He said "sounds pretty cute" on the phone, does this "cute" means that he could hear me clearly or means that my voice sounds cute to him???
The fact that he said "Sound like an american, I'm jealous", Prior to saying "sounds pretty cute" I would think he was implying to the manner in which you were speaking.We were talking about my English pronunciation before he said that. He said :"Sound like an american, I'm jealous". Then, I laughed.. I forgot the specific words we said. But does "cute" have a meaning of "clear"?
Jonegy,Jonegy said:"cute" can mean so many things these days..... beautiful, sweet, charming .....
Then again - when I have been in the US, - using "the crack" (sarcasm) , I have heard --
"hey - cute !! " as a reply, when an instant response wasn't forthcoming.
( I have told my nephews and nieces (in Rio) not to use this term under any circumstances. )
The classic line that came from the show was when Donny would say, "Cute Marie, real cute!" "The interesting thing about that line is that even though I always said it, I didn't come up with it. Marie was the first one to say it and it was an adlib," says Donny. http://www.osmond.com/donnyandmarie/70s-show.html
