Hi, it’s Susie Dentinfang here, Werewolfish language graduate, and word expert on the popular Werewolf TV quiz programme: Countdown to the Full Moon. Greenygrey has now grown of its original use in the Greenygrey world, and is commonly used in werewolf circles, such as the full moon.
Having enjoyed learning the many uses of greenygrey in the werewolf world I thought it would be fun to bring you some uses it has found in the human world. Here are two:
Greenygrey Landscape and Weather
The original use of greenygrey in the human world was for the British landscape, but this combination of green and grey can be seen in most places with grey stone and green flora. Bringing green into the equation hopefully puts a positive spin on grey days.
‘Isn’t it a lovely greenygrey day and location.’
The Doublethink Grey Area
Greenygrey has also found use as a kind of doublethink (George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four) grey area; for grey areas which seem more than one-dimensional. In this way it seems to be a 21st century version of Joseph Heller’s Catch-22 double-bind logic.
Person 1: ‘I don’t know if that is a greenhouse or house of grey.’
Person 2: ‘That’s what I’d call a greenygrey area.’
I hope you’ve enjoyed these examples of greenygrey,
and will have fun putting them into play.
