AAE Q149: 'wet-eared'

hi,

I wonder the meaning of the word 'wet-eared'.

Thanks


Hello,

This is from the expression "to be wet behind the ears" which is used to describe a person who is either very young or inexperienced. It originates from the fact that newborn babies are still wet (and obviously inexperienced).

Therefore to describe someone as wet-eared is to say that they have little experience.
