New Word #107

I thought about the word “green” a month ago when the spring was in full swing, and all the trees and bushes started to turn green, but I didn’t get to compile the words until now. There aren’t many words for the green color, not as many as words for red, brown, blue etc. I can only find 9 words. By the way, I really don’t know the difference between bluish green and the greenish blue. However when I go to, it does show two distinctly different colors for jade and turquoise.

verdant: green

jade: bluish green

emerald: bright green

turquoise: greenish blue

aquamarine: light bluish green

aqua: this is the same color as aquamarine.

teal: dark greenish blue

lime: bright light green. However many limes are dark green rather than light green.

viridescent: greenish

Green Phrases

green with envy: very envious

greenhorn: (informal) a person who is new to or inexperienced at a particular activity.

green thumb: (informal) natural talent for growing plant

green light: (informal) given permission to go ahead.

The grass is always greener on the other side: other people’s lives or situations always seem better than your own.
