Those are the types of questions, seen occasionally, that you just have to tell a student, if they ask, that you don't honestly know and just offer an educated guess and nudge them towards looking into it while you do the same.


Exactly what I did when she asked.She is searching for an answer as well.

To all who have offered possible explanations I thank you for your help.Good to know that I can come to this site and ask for advice.

Cheers.

Yes, and if she's professionally translating she can't just guess and potentially misconstrue the author's meaning!

Why not post on amazon.com on the review page of the book? I have asked a question once or twice there about a product and got good and quick answers. Someone who's read the whole book might know exactly what the author is talking about.

My OH experiences "synesthesia" where voices have a colour.

I'm not sure I've ever heard of a voice being green, but it could be possible within this interpretation!
