1. about satisfactory / satisfying

His answer is safisfactory.
His answer is satisfying .

Is there anything wrong with two sentences
or any difference between them?



2. about satisfactorily / satisfyingly

They have not satisfactorily answered my questions.
They have not satisfyingly answered my questions.

or any difference between them?

1. about satisfactory / satisfying

His answer is safisfactory. :D
=> adjective derived from the noun satisfaction

His answer is satisfying . :D
=> adjective, notably participle, derived from the verb satisfy

2. about satisfactorily / satisfyingly

They have not satisfactorily answered my questions. :D
=> adverb derived from the adjective satisfactory

They have not satisfyingly answered my questions. :(
=> adverb derived from the participle satisfying, but, satisfyingly means, gratify, please, whereas satisfactorily means, meet the need:

EX: They have not met my needs. :D
EX: They have not gratified/pleased me. OK, but not the meaning we want. :(

If you feel that we have not _________ adressed your questions or concerns,
we will refer you to a neutral and independent third party.
a) satisfied b) satisfatory c) satisfatorily d) satisfyingly

We're looking for an adverb to modify 'have not addressed'. a) and b) are out because they are not adverbs; d) is out, too, because satisfyingly means, gratify, please, which leaves us with c) satisfactorily.

satisfactory (adj.) + -ily becomes an adverb satisfactorily.
Here, an adjective becomes an adverb. :D

I always thank you for your kind replies. :)

It's very clear now except one.

I looked up "satisfyingly" in the Macmillan dictionary.
It says "satisfyingly" is adverb.

satisfying / adjective

1. making you feel pleased or happy:
a satisfying result/achievement
She finds writing poetry deeply satisfying.

2.a satisfying meal is one that makes you feel that you have eaten well and have eaten enough

satisfyingly / adverb
Macmillan Publishers Ltd. 2002


I guess "satisfactorily" is more common than "satisfyingly"
Is it right?

Well I learn new things everyday. Thank you. :D

satisfyingly (adv.) means, gratify, please, whereas satisfactorily means, meet the need. :D

Thanks again. :D

I shall edit my previous post to you. :oops:

More hot and muggy than hot and humid. We've had typhoon weather for the past three days; slow moving typhoon, too. It's pretty much cleared up now, though. The birds are singing and the clouds are rolling away. :D Now we can look forward to 40+ temperatures. Agh. :(

Korean, eh? I used to live in Junju. Have you heard of it?

I heard of that typhoon.
It passed the east coastline of Korea and then disappeared last weekend.
Japan was in the middle of it for three days.

In terms of Fahrenheit, what is about 40 degress there?
Over 100, I guess.

Take care of yourself. Health is everything. :wink:

I enjoyed the information in this thread thanks to both of you.

Right, Casiopia. Junju in Jullabuk-do is a good middle-sized southwestern city of Korea.

Take care, both of you!

40 Celsius is 104 Fahrenheit. :D

Here is the formula for converting:

Celsius to Fahrenheit
Celsius Temperature_____ times 9______ divided by 5_____ plus 32 equals ______Farhrenheit.

Example
40 x 9 = 360
360 divided by 5 = 72
72 + 32= 104 degrees Fahrenheit

Fahrenheit to Celsius
Fahrenheit Temperature ______ minus 32 ______times 5 _____divided by 9 equals_____ Celsius.

Example
104 - 32 = 72
72 x 5 = 360
360 divided by 9 = 40 degrees Celsius

All the best, :D

When I watch or listen to weather forecast, it is confusing
because in the U.S you use a different system.
Often I can't guess it is cool, cold, freezing cold, warm, hot, scorchingly hot.

But I can guess that over 100 Fahrenheit is very hot.
I heard that lasting over 100 is called "heat wave".
Right?

I think we have a kind of heat wave here in Korea and there in Japan.

Anyway, the formula is very useful.
I can have an exact number now.

Thank you. :D
