- A GREY AREA -

A GREY AREA means something that is not clearly defined and needs careful judgement. For example:

"We have always had a professional attitude to copyrighted texts, but online copyright is still a bit of a grey area."

Many people think they know what right and wrong are, but on closer examination it's usually a grey area.

"It's a grey area isn't it?" (Meaning the speaker is talking about an unsure concept).

"I do well in math and most sciences, but chemistry is still kind of a grey area."
