> is right!!!!!!Nooo. What I proposed first was "half-sitting". You came up
with "half-sitting and "half-seated", prefering the "half-sitting".
However, finally I chose "half-seated".
But anyway, I prefer to use Google rather for terminology (as I have
done about hundred times during translating this paper). This case
of "half-seated" vs. "half-sitting" seems to me an example
of "natural language", when Google may not provide a good answer.
