    Re: expression

    Try a thesaurus, starting with any of these: developing, immature, nubile, pubescent, labile, half-baked. They're not synonyms, and they're in a range of registers, but they should be enough to get you going. Any questions arising, ask again and someone will probably have something to say; they're more likely to be inclined to if you've made an effort to start with.
