    likeable

    Hello,

    I think I know the basic meaning of the word 'likeable', but when I checked the phrase 'you will find him likeable' on the internet,I found no search results. I'd like to use this phrase in this sentence:
    'My dad is the most generous person on earth, I'm sure you will find him likeable, too.'

    Could you tell me what the problem might be with this phrase?

    Thank you very much,
    heyt

    There is no problem with your sentence. I would use a full stop instead of your first comma and remove the final comma but the words are fine. If you put five words together and then Google them, you won't always get a hit. That doesn't mean they're wrong.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
