    tinge (v)

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to give me your considered opinion concerning the interpretation of the verb in bold in the following sentences?

    The color, though tinged with garnet, was still youthful overall.

    tinge = color lightly,

    These flashes of memory were always tinged with the fear of the hunted. Not wandering, but running.

    But is the victory tinged with regret?

    tinge = to affect in some degree with the qualities of another substance

    V.
