Does "sweet" in "sweet Juliet" mean "lovely" or "cute"?
Juliet: Oh, Romeo－I must go.
Listen. If your love is honorable and your purpose
is marriage, I will send a messenger tomorrow.
Give her a message for me.
Tell me when and where to meet you, and Iíll
follow you anywhere in the world.
Good night, my love.
Romeo: Good night, sweet Juliet.
(Juliet closes the window and goes inside.)
Parting is such sweet sorrow, but I will see
you again very soon
Then, what do you think it is?
It means he's in love with her, in this case.
You can have a friend who's nice and friendly, but you probably wouldn't call him sweet. In fact, it's more an attitude that the speaker has about the person. My example, I think my new kitten is sweet; people who don't like cats wouldn't say so.
4. Having a pleasing disposition; lovable: a sweet child.
5. Kind; gracious: It was sweet of him to help out.
That's right, it comes from the context, as in "Does "sweet" in "sweet Juliet" mean ...?"
If he simply asked what 'sweet' meant, you'd want more context.
I agree. He is being subjective, and to Romeo, the very sight of her is like brown sugar.
