Translations link is wrong, (not in the proper color/colour format) but I put this link in preemptively, until that method is better established. --Connel MacKenzie 17:38, 7 October 2006 (UTC)

I've removed the "Chiefly US" tags, due to the fact that the definitions at grey were exactly the same, meaning that the US definition is not unique. X Parasite

Your edits were reverted; the US definition is not unique, but this is the spelling of the name of the color that is unique to the US. L☺g☺maniac 21:07, 12 December 2009 (UTC)
The spelling difference is covered in the "Alternative Spellings" section. By saying "Chiefly US in a definition, you indicate that that meaning is not used elsewhere. X Parasite
The meaning is not used elsewhere. Elsewhere, that meaning is carried by a different sequence of letters grey. --EncycloPetey 00:50, 13 December 2009 (UTC)
I hear no particular difference; it's exactly the same word. Therefore, defining gray as "grey" is grossly inadequate. X Parasite

"his grey head" = having grey hair?[edit]

Is this a separate sense? e.g. "the old man shook his grey head". It's the hair, not the head, that is grey. Equinox 01:15, 11 March 2014 (UTC)
