    adjectives to go with appearance

    Which of these adjectives can be used with te word appearance?

    -plain
    -plain-looking
    -ugly
    -repulsive
    -ordinary
    -funny
    -unpleasant
    -dowdy
    -slatternly

    I think plain an ugly can't be used in co mbination with appearance, but how about the rest?
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    Re: adjectives to go with appearance

    What makes you think "plain" and "ugly" do not sound good with "appearance"? In fact only native speakers can answer such questions properly but I googled it and found that "plain", "ugly", "repulsive" are used with the word "appearance".

    I think there are infinite possibilities when you talk about appearance.

    Hey, Boris. Now that you're answering questions, you should put "Not a teacher" in your post.

    And what about Boris's answer about the usage of the adjectives with 'appearance'? Do you agree?
