    "He is somewhat of the same persuasion".

    He is a little bit of the same persuasion; He is to some degree of the same persuasion.

    Re: somewhat of

    let me tell you my feedback. he is somewhat of the same persuasion doesnt make any sense at all to me. perhaps u meant to say he has ...

    second. is it the same to say "somewhat of" and "somewhat"(without of).

    third. i dont know if my question didnt come across.
    i know the meaning of somewhat, i just asked if it could mean the same as "like" and "kinda"

    take care

    It came across loud and clear, Tenderboy. First, you need 'of'.

    And yes, it's similar to 'like' and 'kinda like'.
