“Eminem Helps Save Detroit’s Fledgling Auto Industry”
Headline in DrJays.com, purveyor of sneakers, jeans & urban clothing, for a contrived story on how the “Imported from Detroit” ad has helped Chrysler post a $116 million profit in the first three months of the year. Let’s not even go there.
Rather, let’s recommend that DrJays uses some money to support fledgling writers who know a bit of the English language.
noun, often attributive \flej-liŋ\
Definition of fledgling
1: a young bird just fledged
2: an immature or inexperienced person
3: one that is new <a fledgling company>
I don’t think Detroit is either one of them. Is there an antonym for “fledgling?”
