A man can be described as handsome, and a woman as pretty, but not really the other way around. You can use 'good-looking' for both sexes if you like.


In Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, Elizabeth Bennet is described by Mr. Darcy as follows: " She is tolerable; but not handsome enough to tempt me.." It was the first and only time I came across the word "handsome" to describe a woman.

Hi,

I'm trying to translate the term, "tower shadowing". d'oh! It is a technical term mostly used in aerodynamics.
I think the context will help, here is a link where it is used.
