when we describe the nose of Westerns, is it tall or long?
traditional Filipinos have flat noses but nowadays due to intermarriage with foreigners, Filipino noses go longer.
I checked the dictionary for prominent and its "noticeable", "standing out", "leading", "well-known", "projecting upward".
How do I use it in a sentence relative to the nose?
and also with stuck out?
Are these probable?
* His nose is prominent.
* His nose sticks out.
"Prominent" is just a polite way to say "big," blouen. :)
I don't know that I've ever had call to use this word in conversation. The best example I can think of is a journalist describing someone he really doesn't want to offend but who has a schnozz like Jimmy Durante's. "Harginson is instantly recognizable. His piercing ice-blue eyes and distinctive profile with its prominent nose is well-known to everyone who follows the volatile business of pork-belly futures."
Thanks, but apparently, prominent doesn't fit common conversations but in books and articles only. What is the most commonly used adjective for the nose?
