i find this sentences in /touchston2/I kind of like cold weather
it is correct but for me it seems to be strange he could only say I like cold weather
have you any idea about it?????????????????
I kind of like is not as strong to me as I like.
Also, when we're speaking, we often use unnecessary words, or omit words- speech is not organised the same way as writing and we don't always speak in perfect sentences.
As Tdol says: "I kind of like is not as strong to me as I like."
It's [dare I say "sort of"] equivalent to: "I rather/quite like [or I am quite partial to] cold weather.
"Kind of" is also often shortened to "kinda".
Hope this helps
