Colors and words.

A friend passed along this video about words for colors, and how words for colors develop in different languages.  It reminded me of a friend of mine, Gordon, with whom I was having a discussion about some coworkers who had sat across from me at a meeting wearing fuschia, chartreuse and magenta blouses which in a row, were quite visually difficult to look at!  He looked blank at me and said ‘I’m a guy, I got blue, red, green, yellow… nothing more complex than that!’
