Hi, it’s Susie Dentinfang, word expert at the Greenygrey and Countdown to the Full Moon. Today we have a great greenygrey synonym to stimulate your hippocampus.
The wonderful word is ambivalent. Ambivalence is a most greenygrey feeling, as described by our beloved free online dictionary:
The coexistence of opposing attitudes or feelings, such as love and hate, toward a person, object, or idea.
Moreover, ambivalent is also a ten-letter word. And with a little imagination, it could probably be split into two separate words either side of the a, as green and grey are connected by a y for greenygrey: ambiv-a-lent.
Using images is a proven method to memorise things, so to remember ambivalent as a synonym of greenygrey it might be a good idea to associate ambiv with green, and lent with grey.
Y? Yes, that’s right, the y goes with a!
Next time, I hope to bring you vacillation…or maybe equivocation…
