Actually, "arancio" is the orange tree, the fruit is "arancia" (plural: "arance").
A hint: often fruit tree are masculine such as the related fruit is feminine. E.g.: melo/mela; pero/pera; ciliegio/ciliegia; arancio/arancia; pruno/prugna; nocciòlo/nocciola; banano/banana... but: limone and fico are always masculine!!! (pay more attention on "fico"!) ;)
Question to native English speakers: would you say "The orange color" or "The color orange"?
We would add the linking verb "is" so the sentence would be "The color is orange."
Yes, I know, but I mean like... saying... "This is the color orange, the best color ever." or "This is the orange color, the best color ever".
I know you already got an answer, but as another native English speaker, I can confirm that we say "The color orange" and not "The orange color."
The second one would only be used if you were talking about a very specific color of orange. Maybe if there were buckets of paint and you were talking about an orange bucket, you might say, "The orange color is okay, but that purple color is even better." But talking about the color orange in general, definitely "the color orange."
You don't always have to add the verb "is". i.e. "What is your favourite colour?" Answer: "The colour orange".
Usually we say "the color orange," but sometimes we say "the orange color." Example: 1) The color orange is used for the UF mascot. 2) The orange color on your throw pillows really brightens up the room.
As a native English speaker, I can confirm that we would hardly ever say, 'color,' but, we would say, 'colour.' The language you have been asking about is American.
They are the same language...if you want to be technical they are separate dialects (if you even consider them that far apart.) It would be more like an accent with slight word differences, like there are from state to state.
