I thought I should give this a better explanation and why this translation is slightly wrong.
First of all this sentence and Alexis' reply is a reference to this dress:
People have had troubles discerning the colours of this dress, some calling it blue and black, others calling it golden and white. This depends on your screen settings and the lighting in your room.
First of all, "gylden" is a slightly dated version of the word "gyllen", stemming from "gull" (gold). An archaic spelling of "gull" was "guld", which explains the "d" in "gylden", while "guld" is not found in any modern literature. "Gyllen" reflects the modern spelling "gull" better.
Secondly, "gyllen" is the wrong translation in this case. From the english sentence "Golden and white", golden can be translate to both "gyllen" (an adverb) and "gull(gul)" (an adjective) [literary: golden yellow]. It is clear that "golden" in the english sentence represents the adjective describing the colour of the dress, so It should translate to "Gullgul og hvit" or "Gull og hvit". (Or "Gull(gul) and kvit" if you want to use an alternative spelling of "hvit".)
On a sidenote "gyllen" can also mean "shiny" and "gilded".
It doesn't completely depend on screen settings / lighting. I was in the room with multiple people looking at the same picture. Some thought it was gold and white, and others (like me) thought it was blue and black.
Yeah, it also depends on your eye. But almost everyone can see both if you change the light.
I couldn't see anything other than Blue and Black until I read somewhere to try it using a laptop. I sat still while tilting the screen back and forth and finally saw the gold and white version :)
After studying the picture forever i could see the top part as white and gold fading into and the bottom being black and blue.
As a professional photographer in my real life, I can state that while the video explanation of the "dress" phenomena is not as detailed as might be wished, it is absolutely correct as far as it goes.... (about 80% of the way.)
Takk! I had looked it up originally because there did seem to be varying opinions on what "gold (color)" would most accurately translate as, and your answer helped a lot. :)
I saw this dress before in a shop and it was blue and black and im jot kidding when I say that
All of the sentences are VERY carefully selected. This does not mean that there is a lack of wit in the choice, though.
