Hi, it’s Susie Dentinfang, word expert at the Greenygrey and Countdown to the Full Moon. I noticed that there has been much discussion on this site lately about green and grey in terms of age. So I decided to investigate in our beloved Free Online Dictionary.
The Greenygrey of Green
The dictionary shows there are positive and negative uses for green in terms of age.
The positive is ‘Youthful; vigorous’; while the negative is ‘Naive; gullible’.
The Greenygrey of Grey
The dictionary also shows there are positive and negative uses for grey in terms of age.
The positive is ‘Neutral; venerable’; while the negative is ‘Ancient; dull’.
That’s all for now, and I hope you give these definitions the green light, or at least consider them a grey area.
