    to a certain extent

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind tell me your opinion concerning my choice of the interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

    Perhaps curiosity might have conquered resentment to a certain extent.

    to a certain extent = somewhat, up to a point, in some measure, to a certain degree

    Re: to a certain extent

    Yes.

    By the way, I think there are a couple of words missing from your first sentence. That's very unlike you!
