Is there a difference between violet and purple?
I asked the same in another sentence discussion. I think purple should be accepted.
Purple usually refers to a group or colors that encompass the blue/red blends in the color spectrum. Violet is a particular hue and tone of that spectrum. I am getting the impression that in Ukrainian, "фіолетовий" is used for the broad spectrum
No one says violet normally!
Agreed. This is a colour I'll rarely say. Purple is more common obviously!
Some places accept "shoes" some only take "sneakers" please be consistent
where are your purple sneakers?
