The volume presents sixteen chapters focused on lexicalization patterns used in color naming in a variety of languages. Although previous studies have dealt with categorization and perceptual salience of color terms, few studies have been consistently conducted in order to investigate phonological, morphological, syntactic, and semantic devices languages use to form color terms.

The aim of this volume is to approach color data from a relativist and typological perspective and to address some novel viewpoints in the research of color terms, such as: (a) the focus on language structure per se in the study of lexicalization data; (b) investigation of inter- and intra-language structural variation; (c) culture and language contact as reflected in language structure.

Topics of this book have a broad appeal to researchers working in the fields of linguistics, anthropology, sociology, and psychology.

“The book achieves its goal by taking the research on perceptual salience of color terms a step further and gives a good account of lexicalization patterns from diachronic, synchronic, and sociolinguistic points of view. [...] Several articles of this volume deserve special attention from theoretical linguists and typologists since they make an important contribution to our understanding of inter- and intra-language variation.”
