"That old airplane is short and slow."
Translation:Rövid és lassú az a régi repülőgép.
what is the diff between rövid and alacsony? Is there is reason to prefer rövid?
How can one know if the specific airplane is not tall or not long? Arbitrary.
Usually the length of an airplane is more important to the speaker/listener than its height, so a "short plane" is more likely to be a not long one.
