It doth not become green heads to advise grey hairs.
这是18世纪英国作家Henry Fielding说的一句话。
green heads据说是“年轻人”的意思,我想知道哪本词典收录了gree head(s)可以解释“年轻人”?谢谢!

楼主,这是修辞。对仗兼借代。
而且green有“生手、无经验的人”之说啊~

不必细细考证词典~我查了确实没有~

根据这个句子,谁都能猜出green heads的大意。但我想得到确切的答案:这个短语是不是在英文词典中表示“年轻人”的意思。

确实没有必要就 green heads 这个短语进行深究。如 doris 所说,green heads 与 grey hairs 是修辞,对仗兼借代。如果知道 green 有“生手、无经验”的意思,这整句话应该一看就能明白。此处是用 heads 对应 hairs,在别的情况下也可以用其他字眼。反过来说,如果不是放在适当的语境,就直接用 green heads 来指年轻人,却又不一定恰当。
