  1. Tom Patterson Says:

    Why 6? I thought english had White, black, grey, blue, green, red, brown, yellow, orange, pink, and purple/violet!
    I am a native speaker of english and have always thought of my language as having eleven non-derived categories, and posibly twelve if some people distinguish teal/cyan and/or magenta as its own thing.
