(1) unpunctual appears to be a legitimate English word, but my English friends tell me it doesn't sound very natural. What would you call someone who is often not on time?
(2) "I didn't know what to say in a meeting. I felt quite silly" or would "felt quite stupid" sound better? What's the difference btw silly and stupid in general?
"I overheard some high school students on the bus and their discussions sounded quite silly"? Or is "stupid" more appropriate here? As in, the students were talking rubbish.
