We have a very colourful world around us. Every little thing we see around us has a colour. When you are young or learning a language for the very first time, you will be taught the names of some very common colours like red, blue, green, black, white etc. What you should know is that there are many more colours than the ones you learn as a child.
Names of Colours in English
Growing up, we learn the names of colours by associating them with the objects with those colours. There are also activities conducted nowadays in which the names of the colours would be written with different colour names, and students would be asked to identify the colour in which the word is written and not the word itself (a colour name). This is an activity that is used not just to teach colour names but also to improve the reasoning skills.
‘Did you see the girl in the red dress?’ You would often come across such associations in your daily lives. Colours are used for the sake of identifying both animate and inanimate objects. So, calling a magenta-coloured dress a red dress will not help. Learning the names of different colours will help you in ways that you would not be able to foresee. Have a look at the list below.
