Twenty-five years ago, Berlin and Kay argued that there are commonalities
of basic color term use that extend across languages and cultures, and
probably express universal features of perception and cognition. In this
volume, a distinguished team of contributors from visual science,
psychology, linguistics and anthropology examine how these claims have
fared in the light of current knowledge, surveying key ideas, results and
techniques from the study of human color vision as well as field methods
and theoretical interpretations drawn from linguistic anthropology.
