Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "Kind"

The meaning of "Kind" in various phrases and sentences

Q: "she's one of your kind" ne anlama geliyor?
A: It means in some way she's like you. Maybe you have similar attitudes or same ethnicity. It depends on context but somehow you both have something important in common
Q: It's always great to meet kind people like you ne anlama geliyor?
A: It means the person who said the statement is saying you are a kind person, and they're glad to have met you.
Q: What kind of person would make the worst boss ne anlama geliyor?
A: Both are fine I think. However, for me, what you wrote 'What kind of person would make the worst boss?' sounds the slightly more natural. I think this sort of thing would depend on preference - everyone is different.

But, why I think it is the most natural is because usually when you ask this question, you're asking what characteristics of a person, what habits, what personality traits would make a bad boss. This sort of thing 'makes' a person. For example:

"What kind of person would make the worst boss?"
Answer: "Someone who is impatient."

Being 'impatient' would MAKE someone a bad boss.
If you asked: "What kind of person would be the worst boss."
The answer would be something a bit more intrinsic of the person; and would be very highly opinionated; for example: Answer: "A man." (depends on preference of the person). Or the answer could be a certain race "A person from the country ____".

Short answer: Both of the ways you wrote it are very interchangeable, but the slight difference would just be one is more natural than the other. But this is just my opinion and everyone probably has different opinions about this!
Q: we don't kind of understand ne anlama geliyor?
A: It should be "We kind of don't understand." (We don't really understand)

It means you understand a little bit, but you don't understand most of it.

It has a feeling like 딱히, 정확히
Q: : Where it's both familiar and different, and we don't kind of understand if it's entirely dead or entirely alive. ne anlama geliyor?
A: It's both familiar and different because a doll is modeled after a human, but it's not a living thing, which makes it the same like us except that it's alive.

The second part we don't understand if it's dead or alive is because we play and do voice over with dolls, giving it a life when it's actually suppose to be dead.

Hope this helps

Q: kind of ile örnek cümleler göster.
A: "Kind of" just means "a little bit." So "I can kind of do it" means "I can do it a little bit, but I'm not very good at it."

Usually when it's used with the verb "like" it means you don't want to be completely direct.

So "I kind of like her" literally means "I think I like her but I'm not sure yet" or "I like her a little bit."
But in most cases, it means "I really like her, but I'm too shy/embarrassed to say it directly to you."

I hope that makes sense!
Q: Of any kind ile örnek cümleler göster.
A: "Please go to the store and get me some bread of any kind." That's only one I can think of, since "of any kind" isn't used very often. Of more common way of saying that is "Please go to the store and get me any kind of bread."

Q: What kind of sports do you like? ve What kind of sport do you like? arasındaki fark nedir?
A: "What kind of sports do you like?" Is a general question to ask someone, good english. "What kind of sport do you like?" Isn't common, it would rather be said as "What is your favorite sport?" Since you are referring to just one.
Q: What kind of vegetables ve What kinds of vegetables ve What kinds of vegetable arasındaki fark nedir?
A: A "kind of vegetable" means carrots, lettuce, and so on. Whether or not there is an S after "vegetable" makes no difference in meaning, but it's important whether or not there is an S after "kind". "Kinds of vegetables" means more than one. for example, "What kind of vegetable grows underground" is asking for one answer. "What kinds of vegetables grow underground" is asking for more than one answer.
Q: what kind of ve what sort of arasındaki fark nedir?
A: They can often mean the same thing, however there are some small differences.

Kind of : Usually refers to a large category of something. For example, dogs. "What kind of dog is that?"

Sort of: Usually refers to something more specific than "kind of". For example, money. "What sort of prices do they charge?"

The difference is not too great, and if you use it incorrectly you will still be understood. :)
Q: a kind of ve a sort of arasındaki fark nedir?
A: Both "A kind of" and "A sort of" can be used to mean the same thing. "A kind of" gives the type or category of something (the group it belongs to) "A dog is a kind of animal". "A sort of" can mean the same thing, but sounds a little vague and uncertain. "A dog is a sort of animal". "A kind of" or A type of" are more commonly used in this way than "A sort of". We also use "sort of" and "kind of" to describe something to be a little like something else, but not very much like it. For example: "The dog is kind of brown" or the "dog is sort of brown". In this case "sort of" is more commonly used than "kind of".
Q: kind ve sort ve type arasındaki fark nedir?
A: Oh, easy! As I said before, Kind of and Sort of both have the same meaning just different words to use. "A type of something" Is a term used to describe something. "Calico is a type of cat", "An almond is a type of nut" and "A bi-plane is a type of airplane" You say this to take a complicated word/term and make it easier to understand. like "A term is a type of 'saying'" Hope this helped! I can explain further if you need

Q: What kind of personality do you think the French have? bu doğru görünüyor mu?
A: × What kind of personality do you think the French have?

Q: Please, are you so kind to correct and improve this email? Thank you so much!

Hello dear Mª Luisa,
I hope you and yours are doing well!
I'm so sorry to bother you. However, I was wondering why you wrote me in my proposal that I need to make a good presentation,
I think that maybe you didn't see it or it didn't arrive you well , by reason of you didn't correct it for me, or do you think it is bad and insufficient presentation or it has to be different?

(A proposal to improve community access and facilities.

It is known by the council that parks and recreation support the health of our community and contribute to the economic and environmental well-being of our city. Hence, the aim of this proposal is to assess current parks and make suggestions for improvements. We must extremely increase the facilities and provide greater public access.)

Again, sorry to bother you and hope you don't mind my asking , but I'd like to know, what I haven't done well to correct myself.
Please, drop me a line when you can, no hurry.
Take care a lot, see you soon!
A: Ms. Luisa,
I hope you are doing well. I’m sorry to be a bother, however I was wondering as to why you requested that I make a good presentation in response to my earlier proposal. If I’m not wrong I assume that you might’ve not received my proposal or that there is something wrong with it that I should review once again.

(..... the proposal)

Again sorry for the inconvenience. I hope you don’t mind me asking, but I’d appreciate if you could let me know where I’ve gone wrong so as to rectify it as soon as possible. Please get back to me at your earliest convenience.

Thanking you,

(I wasn’t sure about the name, depending on how formal the mail is I suggest write only the name if it is quite formal. I hope I’ve corrected this in accordance to the context. Hope it helps)
