What does it mean if people of a certain profession are thought to be “curiously archaic”?
Without any context, I’d say it means ‘oddly out-dated or old-fashioned.’
Oh, i see, so curious can be odd?
Yes, odd or unusual.
If someone tells you, for example, that you have a “curious point of view”, then they think your point of view is novel or odd or unusual.
I see. Learned something new today.
Thank you, Amy.
