What does comprensivo mean?
Uh, yeah, as I was saying, what does comprensivo mean? It's used like this; "Un medico es mas comprensivo que un abogado." I'm in spanish 2 by the way if that helps you explain it to me.
Double click the word to get the definition.
A doctor can give a comprehensive exam and a lawyer can do a comprehensive review, but it doesn't make sense to me in your sentence.
A doctor is more comprehensive than a lawyer. I don't quite get the intention.
Use the dictionary, for me, the main feature of this site. The first definition it brings up is 'understanding'. So a doctor is seen as more caring and understanding than lawyers who are seen as conniving con-artists.
I think Charlius is correct. I stumbled across the word "comprensivo" when I looked up the word sympathetic.
I don't believe that dictionary definition has anything to do with being more caring. comprehension and understanding have to do with knowledge not bedside manner.
When he explained that they are saying a doctor is as comprehensive as a lawyer it made sense.
comprehensive in this context mean thorough.
tanto.... como=as much....as
I'm wondering if they are trying to say a doctor is more understanding than a lawyer. Even that makes no sense and would be the wrong use of the work comprehend.
Certainly they can't be saying a doctor is more learned that a lawyer. I have know idea what the sentence means.
