Referring to a person's face; as seen from the side
I've never heard a native English speaker say "You are lovely in profile". You have a lovely profile, maybe.
I could imagine a photographer saying that to a model in English. Many Continental European languages use "have" to describe personal qualities though.
I have heard a native English say, "You are beautiful in profile" and "You are lovely in profile". He was cutting out profiles of women at the time.
I like your face shape when viewed at a 90° angle from where you are looking!!
I've never heard of this saying before. Is it similar to "pretty in person?"
No, in profile is a term mostly used in art. It means 'from the side'. Usually this is in reference to someone's face seen from the side. (google search for 'en profil' if you want more visual references)
Why isnt it profilen
"i profil" = in profile
"i profilen" = in the profile
Damning with faint praise.
Eh, not really. Most people look better in profile for some reason.
....they said to the bald eagle
Without context, this sentence sounds weird...
Welcome to Duo Norsk! :D
No native speaker would use grammar this badly!
