Is it possible to favor without being fondly? "Nature favors stronger", "this trade favors advertisement upon quality" or such? Lacrymocéphale 10:01, 29 August 2009 (UTC)

Yes, if I understand your question. The first verb sense, "to look upon fondly", offers as an alternative the verb "to prefer". Thus, "Natures favors the stronger." I don't understand your second example sentence. DCDuring TALK 18:16, 16 September 2009 (UTC)
