Hello,
Can we say ''to be pejorative'' in English.

- You look very skiny, you should gain some weight.
- I hope this remark was not too pejorative and she did not get upset.

Is the above correct ?
Many thanks
Piotr

    Yes, it's perfect! (Although if you were going to say it, do use the contracton of 'did not' --> didn't. It'll sound much better!)
