What are the adjective counterparts for "sense" and "sensibility" as in Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility?
Would the one for "sensibility" be "sensible"?
What is the one for "sense"? Does it have the same meaning as "rational"?
The word sensible is an adjective counterpart to both words.
So 3b: corresponds to sensibility and 4: corresponds to sense. Isn't English a wonderful language?

Meaning may have shifted since the novel was written, but I think you are right about "sense" being "rational". "Sensibility" corresponds to "perceptive" or "sensitive".
