Student or Learner
I am wondering if I have correctly used the word "tinge" in these sentences. Please, would you correct my mistakes.
1. The late afternoon sun tinged her long wavy hair with gold.
2. John could sense a tinge of jealousy in her wife's voice.
3. Her eyes shone with a tinge of sadness.
I expect you meant '...in his wife's voice'.
Probably, but not necessarily, these days.

Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
Some Scots pronounce Joan something like I pronounce John.
John's own wife might actually not have anything to do with this.
It all could very well be far more complicated than one would think.
Especially these days.

(I'm not a teacher or a native English speaker. I'm just trying to help...)
I didn't notice the "her".
