    info termini inglesi

    Vorrei sapere qual' la differenza fra i termini suave e debonair.
    Inoltre vorrei sapere se il termine modest corrisponde a riservato.

    Molte grazie

    They are synonymous. In fact, the OAD Thesaurus lists "Suave" as the first
    alternate definition for "Debonair," where if you search "Debonair" you'll
    find "Suave" listed as the third alternate.

    They both derive from the French. In fact, "de bon air" is pretty obvious;
    not so much "Suave," which comes from Old French via Latin "suavis."
