Examples from texts

But, if the other women chose to coax and cajole the good, simple father, Theo herself was too honest to continue for long even that sweet and fond delusion.
Однако, если сестра и мать почли за благо лаской и хитростью обманывать доброго, простодушного отца, Тео была слишком честной натурой, чтобы долго оставлять папеньку в приятном заблуждении.

The woman would have been fun, but a man screamed just as shrilly as a woman if you knew how to coax it out of him.

She rushed at the children, shouted at them, coaxed them, told them before the crowd how to dance and what to sing, began explaining to them why it was necessary, and driven to desperation by their not understanding, beat them....

He spoke in a low, sweet voice, was attentive and coaxing with visitors, kissed his auntie's hand with an orphan's sensibility; and one hardly had time to show oneself before he had put a chair for one.
Он говорил тихим и сладким голосом, держал себя опрятно и чинно, ласкался и прислуживался к гостям, с сиротливой чувствительностию целовал ручку у тетушки. Бывало, не успеете вы показаться – глядь, уж он несет вам кресла.
