Semantics of ''Blue'' in Various Languages
|Submitter Email:||click here to access email|
I'm planning to do some research on the semantics of the word ''blue'' in as many languages as possible. More specifically, I'm interested in whether the connotations of sadness, melancholy (as in ''the blues'') are to be found in languages other than English. Could anyone out there help, either by providing data from your own languages or the one you're familiar anough with, or pointing to existing research in the field?
Will post a summary if results prove to be interesting.
All the best,
