Re: The usage of "sort of "?
"Sort of " is quite frequenly used both in written and oral English! However, most of the time, I don't know why it is used because I can't find out its actual meaning. The sentence still works whether "sort of " is ommitted or not! To make things even worse, its corresponding meaning can't be found in Chinese sometimes!
For example , what is the use of sort of in the following sentences?
1.We have come to the very clear-cut ( straight forward )sort (type) of decision that treatment under these circumstances really works.
And by the way what does clear-cut mean here?
