    tinge/tint

    Hi,

    I came across this exercise today and I was wondering which of the four is the correct choice.

    "Every time I watch this movie there is a new tinge/tint/tingle/taint of meaning that springs to mind".

    I think is either tinge or tint, but I'm not sure because I coulnd't find this expression anywhere. And by expression I mean "tint/tinge of meaning".

    By the way, expression and idiom are synonyms?

    Thank you.

    I would say it's probably "tinge".

    The film was tinged with sadness.
    I detected a tinge of irony in the play.
