sosia has a spectacular aura aboutsosia has a spectacular aura about
Smolder (tangled)

Hi
I was seeing one of the latest Disney movies, Tangled (aka Rapunzel).
One moment the male charracter (Flynn) is tied to a chair.
He tries to convince/flirt with her female warden (Rapunzel) and he does the "smolder" (sort of a charismatic-rmantic-funny face) .
I think there are some youtube films, but I have no youtube here, only look for "Smolder" and "tangled".
But... what does really "smolder" means?

Definition of SMOLDER
intransitive verb
1a : to burn sluggishly, without flame, and often with much smoke b : to be consumed by smoldering —often used with out
2: to exist in a state of suppressed activity <hostilities smoldered for years>
3: to show suppressed anger, hate, or jealousy <eyes smoldering with hate>
See smolder defined for English-language learners »
I have to suppose it's option 2 or 3 and the "smolder" must suppress Rapunzel??

saludos

I guess 1 and 3, depending of the situation and how you want to interpret it.

No podría traducirlo propiamente, pero parece que la intención del "smolder" es "derretirla" con una mirada seductora, pero pobre chico.

Right, in this case "smolder" refers to his being attracted to her, like
his ardor (lust) is smoldering...

No sé por qué M-W lo limita a "anger, hate* or jealousy". Podría ser cualquiera emoción fuerte.


* "Hatred" en en-gb.

'Spelled' and 'spelt' are both correct in Britain.

When in doubt, use seethe instead. I think both sides of the Atlantic are
in agreement about it's spelling.
