Colour is a funny thing in all languages :)
The Grass is Blue - A Different Spectrum of Colour
It is often said that languages give you a different perspective on the world. The colour spectrum in Gaelic doesn't always align with the English one. One of the main differences is how Gaelic views blue and green.
Liath - light blue, but can also mean grey.
Gorm - blue / blue-green
Uaine - green
Gorm - green that occurs in nature
- Tha am feur gorm. - The grass is green.
We will explore Gaelic colours in further detail later, as there are some other differences, but we will explain them as we come across them.
