    Default Seeking clarification on research question

    Saludos,

    I can't properly figure out how to translate the question: "Did what you saw or heard make you more or less favorable about Rickie?"

    As a follow up, How would you say "Is that much more favorable or somewhat more favorable?"

    Mis intentos:
    "Y le hizo lo que vio o oyo mas o menos favorable acerca de Rickie?
    "Es mucho mas favorable o un poco mas favorable?"

    Thank you!

    This is not a proper English sentence .... I would never say "Did you saw ir heard ". I would say "Did you see or hear..."

    The rest of the sentence seems to be missing something.

    HI California, the sentence makes perfect sense.

    The main part is:

    Did this (what you saw or heard ) make you more or less....



    Los hombres son superiores a las mujeres porque Alá les otorgó la primacia sobre ellas. Portanto, dió a los varones el doble de lo que dió a las mujeres. Los maridos que sufrieran desobediencia de sus mujeres pueden castigarlas: abandonarlas en sus lechos, e incluso golpearlas.
    No se legó al hombre mayor calamidad que la mujer."


    El Corán (libro sagrado de los musulmanes, recitado por Alá a Maomé en el siglo VI)

    Así que , connor, I would say this:

    ¿Le hizo algo de lo que vio u oyó apreciar a Rickie más o menos?

    Algo de lo que oyó o vio , ¿le hizo eso ver a Rickie en una luz más favorable o menos favorable?

    And the follow up sentence:

    Esto sería/es mucho más o mucho menos favorable?
    Los hombres son superiores a las mujeres porque Alá les otorgó la primacia sobre ellas. Portanto, dió a los varones el doble de lo que dió a las mujeres. Los maridos que sufrieran desobediencia de sus mujeres pueden castigarlas: abandonarlas en sus lechos, e incluso golpearlas.

    Yo are correct. I must have some how missed the "what" in "what you saw.. etc."
