"The flower is pink."
Translation:La floro estas rozkolora.
I understood how to identify that it was a verb in the sentence, but I don't understand how that word came to be.
I know in English, we take nouns and turn them into verbs whose meanings usually have to do with the action that goes along with using that object (We fish fish, we drink drinks, and we rake with rakes), but where's the action inside an adjective? How does one pink?
In the previous question Duo wanted to have the translation of purple. I wrote purpura and was considered wrong! Duo wants violkolora . The dictionaries that I have do not agree! Purpura is purple and violkolora is violet. Technically speaking, violet is one wave length and purple is a range of combinations of red and blue. So please change your amswer.
