  • And what about the connotations of “He gave her an old-fashioned look”? – Itself a very dated expression, I know. The Oxford Dictionaries site says says : (of a facial expression) disapproving: Jonas gave her an old-fashioned look

  • Thanks Claudia. We do have that phrase in the dictionary. It’s one of those funny cases where the headword is ‘old-fashioned’ and there is also a label (indicating that this usage is dated and not often seen now )- and this label also says ‘old-fashioned’ . Potentially confusing in this case, but that’s the label we use for words or phrases that are dying out but may still be encountered (e.g. in older novels).
