    1. Pedantic: showing off learning; bookish. So when we say a person is pendantic, is it positive or kind of negative since in definition, it mentioned 'showing off'?
    2. What's the difference between 'Affectionate' and 'cherished'?

    Thank you.

    Re: pedantic

    It has a negative connotation. A pedantic person's aim in showing off is to make his/her audience feel he/she is superior.

    To be affectionate, is to have warm feelings

    To cherish is a synonym of to treasure; your feelings are deeper.
