This paper investigates the automatic processing of compound nouns which denote color in Modern Greek. The author adopts a transformational grammar and a lexicon-grammar approach. The nouns investigated come from three thematic areas, namely, visual arts, oenology and hair styling. The findings showed that the compound nouns designating color are used frequently in oenology (40%), visual arts (35%) and hair styling (25%).
