comment Would the adjectival form of “on the premises” be on-premise, on premise, or on-premises?
I remember the days when I went by that correct definition. I'm so enculturated now…

@tchrist, it's sounding more like that is the case. Should that go in as an answer? Or should I change the question? I'm still curious to know why green is where people mistakenly go.

It seems I am mistaken about Crayola. It was a fluorescent yellow they called chartreuse. Not wrong, but not right. If enough people have the wrong definition, when does it become an alternate meaning?
