using of horrible and cute together
she is looking horrible but cute....is it grammartically wrong?? someone told me that horrible and cute cant come together
Words "go" together (or not). We don't say they "come" together. You are not using horrible "and" cute. You are using horrible "but" cute. Using "but" means the second thing is an exception to the first. Though something horrible is rarely cute, your sentence indicates that she looks horrible in some way, but cute in another way. A good example is a toddler that gets into mommy's makeup supply. She has lipstick on her cheeks, eye shadow on her nose, ... It is a horrible mess. But she looks very cute.
