Shades of grey, or is it gray?


I’ve been doing  research for a new book (non-fiction, art-related) which I hope to have out by December 1.

Yesterday, I stumbled upon the difference between grey and gray.

I know.

How could anyone be excited over a discovery like that?

Admittedly, it’s not a cure for cancer, but I always use gray and  get blasted for it by friends who are authors, editors, English professor and other types of pillock.

At any rate, I shall keep you in suspense no longer . . . .

  • Grey with an E is the mixing of black and white.
  • Gray with an A is the mixing of black, white, and a third color so that the resulting color is a tinted grey.

Now go forth and impress some word snob carrying a dictionary.
