Another way to say colors ?

Postby jan Samon » Sun Oct 16, 2016 3:21 pm

toki !
I think i've found a new way to say colors :

Green : kule kasi / kule sama kasi (plant color)
Orange : kule seli / kule sama seli (fire color)
Brown : kule jaki / kule sama jaki (fire color)
Grey: kule mun / kule sama mun (moon color)

Is this possible ?

This way to describe colors is used by the Pirahã.

Please see

In Toki Pona is this possible but I prefer to use the words for colors. Maybe you can use your way for poems. For example:

kule ni li lukin sama seli.
pona!

On my foe list are the sockpuppets janKipo and janSilipu because of spamming.
