Subject: reasonably bizarre anymore!
Possibly analogous to the positive use of "anymore":
any comment on this use of "reasonably"? (seen on stumpers-l)
the show has never been on Masterpiece Theatre. It was called Nice Town
and was a British show dealing with race in a reasonably bizarre manner.
It was difficult to make out whether the show was a surreal commedy, a
black comedy, or a serious narrative dealing with modern issues in the
UK. The show was enjoyable although passing strange.
"reasonably bizarre" is a phrase I never expected to see used in a sentence.
Is "reasonably" used here as a synonym for "considerably"?
Or does it mean "not too bizarre"?
But what happens to the glide in the first syllable of "Pulitzer"?
