Consider the descriptive power of colours.


  • Sue turned bright red.
  • Sam turned green.
  • Bob went yellow.
  • Tracey felt blue.
  • Jack turned a strange shade of vermilion.
  • Joe's face darkened.
  • Judy's face brightened.
  • Fred turned puce. (Nobody knows what colour that is either, but we all know what it means.)
  • ... and more!


We all know what they mean, they're all utterly different, but they're all just colours!
