Any attempt to separate a color using words alone cannot fail. We can express the general nature of any color by means of an object of the same nature (which becomes a problem) or its height (which is of interest only as a physics problem) or another color (which becomes a circle). For example, ‘purple’ is not defined as ‘a color between red and blue’ in the New Oxford Dictionary. Blueish defined as ‘the color between green and violet’, while violet is defined as ‘blue-violet’. This study uses several of the above methods, but it is not intended to provide color. Color terms are not clear enough to achieve the goal. The best way to express the ‘meaning’ of a particular color word is to represent the actual color. Many studies have begun this work, most notably Maerz and Paul (A. Maerz and M.R. Paul, Color Dictionary Volume 3, New York, McGraw Hill, 1953). But there are of them in a limited number of colors and shades, colors and flowers (some say as many as 16 million), so it seems impossible to give them all a unique name. Moreover, these existing color definitions do not have a precise definition that will allow each color to be determined correctly. There is no definition of color in word format that can provide the information needed to make tone and gradation more accurate. In fact, some of the color names listed in this dictionary have different (and sometimes overlapping) meanings. This is only partly due to the constant development of our language. These results also show that color vision is extremely realistic. Color is not something we cannot see, and the only way we can see color is by seeing it. We experience many stimuli through two or more senses that reinforce each other. For example, we can hear and hear sounds; We can see, hear and smell heat. We don’t have that color support system. Moreover, what I define as green can also exist as blue. The purpose of this work is rather to present a vocabulary or vocabulary about color and to do so in a way that is inviting enough to encourage readers to participate in the conversation. A single dictionary is widely used, especially as a course introduction. Often, large items are covered with dust and are used for one-time searches to detect them and then quickly return them to their original location. A good dictionary should be viewed as a foreign land that demands exploration, and each visit is a journey of discovery, each dictionary one introduction after another, captivating the reader and making it difficult to leave. I believe this activity can serve such a purpose and attract visitors to stay and explore rather than just paying. I hope that this dictionary, which covers all aspects of color, will serve as an invaluable resource for art students and students of color, although it is not a technical description of many aspects of color or a guide to color techniques. Many of the colors it offers may seem strange or even forbidden to some of us. One might think that color is just an alternative to black and white. Color should only be associated with make-up and fashion or frills such as football jerseys, car color or home design. Does color matter? Is it really worth studying and paying attention? Yes, it is possible. Color is not only an object of art and an important element of our daily lives, but without it the discoveries and advances of the 20th century would not have been possible. As Leonard Shalin explained in Art & Physics, New York, Morrow, 1991, color has been key to helping scientists understand the properties of distant stars; to determine whether our universe is expanding; to understand electromagnetic fields; to investigate the complexities of quantum mechanics and to create atomic structures. The entries in this glossary will quickly show you the important role color plays in our daily lives. Color is not just used for design or decoration. It gives us a way to differentiate ourselves. Color is nature’s way of helping animals escape predators; to attract mates; to indicate when fruit is ripe or rotten. Colors, like a traffic light, serve to instruct us in a beautiful and simple way. Colors provide a simple and quick way to indicate the degree or seriousness of situations such as flood planning, traffic density, danger and safety, to emphasize differences and simplify information easily, in writing or on a computer or monitor. Color is used as a way to diagnose a disease or to indicate the seriousness of a particular illness. For example, doctors recently discovered that the color of a patient’s saliva can indicate the severity of lung disease. In advertising and marketing, color is used to attract our attention and motivate us through the many psychological and physiological responses to color and the appeal it provides to our emotions. We all appreciate the way color creates a packaged product that is otherwise difficult to create. Color can enhance product identities, brands, logos and brand images and create interesting or positive associations in the mind
