    Re: " Cute " means....

    I don't think mental acuity makes anyone cute. For me, the two things are not connected. "Cute" is almost always connected to a person's looks (or an animal's looks).

    The child is cute, not "a cute."

    Precocious children can be cute.

    Re: " Cute " means....

    Behaviour and mannerisms can be cute. It's not exactly just the physical appearance. Consider, "You're cute when you smile."

    Also, the kitten can be cute if it has little paws and dark green eyes...

    I would say that both of those are connected to appearance. I can't imagine anyone saying. "You're so cute when you work out the square root of 4,256"!

    This sentence should end with a full stop (period), not an ellipsis (three dots).

    Re: " Cute " means....

    Cute can also mean being shrewd or clever in a way that shows a lack of respect or honesty. "Mary is very nice, but she's not afraid to get cute when there's something she wants."
