    was rendered uncommonly was rendered uncommonly

    I am not sure about the exact meaning of:
    "was rendered uncommonly intelligent"


    ==================================
    from: Proud and Prejudice
    But no sooner had he made it clear to himself and his friends that she hardly had a good feature in her face, than he began to find it was rendered uncommonly
    intelligent by the beautiful expression of her dark eyes
    ==========================================

    Thanks,
    Mircea

    Re: was rendered uncommonly was rendered uncommonly

    Hello Mircea,

    It means, roughly:

    "He told himself and his friends that she wasn't very pretty. But then he noticed that the beautiful expression in her eyes gave her face an unusually intelligent appearance."

    By the way, it's "Pride and Prejudice"!

    All the best,

    MrP

    Tanks, I will try to be more careful with what I write as long as I can.
