Pinky Meaning

Many players struggled with this challenge because they were simply unfamiliar with the term. The word is not particularly common in everyday life, so what does the word pinky mean?

The word pinky is both an adjective and a noun. The adjective is defined as 'partly pink or with a pink tinge. For example, you could say, "right now, the cliffs are bathed in pinky-orange light." The noun is an informal word meaning, 'the little finger'. For example, you could say, "bring the thumb and pinkie up until they are upright."

There are a few other informal uses of the word, but the most common definitions are associated with the smallest finger and a shade of pink.
