Hi all,
Does anyone know the adjective to describe the colour of the sea, when it melts indistinguishably into an overcast sky?
I came across this word in Iris Murdoch's 'The sea, the sea', but have subsequently forgotten it, and can no longer locate it.
This is not a kudoz / job-related question, it just has been bothering me for some time.
Cheers, Petra

but a tip: I'd post it in KudoZ after all. I think you can reach more Prozies that way. Just post it under "English". Even if it is not job-related, I'm sure nobody will mind.
