Abstract:

Part of the set: Biggam, Carole P., Christian J. Kay and Nicola Pitchford
(Eds), Progress in Colour Studies: Volume I. Language and culture & Volume
II. Psychological aspects (set). 

Along with its companion volume, this book offers a fascinating glimpse
into the current avenues of research into colour, a phenomenon which daily
affects all our lives in often surprising ways. The majority of the papers
originated in a 2004 conference entitled 'Progress in Colour Studies' which
was held in the University of Glasgow, U.K. The contributions to this first
volume, which is principally linguistic and anthropological in content, and
to its companion on the psychological aspects of colour, present either
summaries of state-of-the-art colour research in various disciplines, or
in-depth accounts of certain aspects of such work. This volume includes
approaches such as Natural Semantic Metalanguage, social network analysis,
quantitative analysis, type modification, vantage theory, the centrality of
social norms of inference, place-names and heraldry. In the process, new
insights are offered into the following languages: English, French,
Portuguese, Sorbian, Burarra, Cape Breton Gaelic, Tzotzil, and others.
