How to use "Longish" in context?

vs "shortish"

There is no single answer to the question of how long something should be. In English, for example, terms like "long" and "short" are used as adjectives, but in other languages, these terms may have different meanings. In French, for example, "long" means "extended in length" while "short" means "shorter in length." Similarly, in Spanish, "long" means "drawn out in duration" while "short" means "spare in duration."

This is because the length of something refers to its relative proportions, not its absolute length.
