- n. The quality of being brownish.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
I'm still perplexed why Brits would want to watch it, and why the producers thought that it would be worth the money: there's nothing fancy about it, and there's a constant grayish-brownishness about it.
For one thing, it was far better watered; nowhere could she see the half-dried brownishness so characteristic of her own land.
You'll have to take my word for it that the rest of the brownishness went away after another wipe; the final "after" photo didn't come out!
