K'ekchi' colors

From OmegaWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a child node of Portal:kek

  • Black
    • K'ek'
  • White
    • Sak
  • Blue or Green
    • Rax
  • Yellow
    • K'an
  • Red
    • Cak

Though the K'ekchi' language is obviously badly lacking in colors, I had the opportunity to visit with some natives about this problem. I demonstrated that new colors could be named by concatenating base colors. The natives easily understood these new constructs. Consider:

  • Orange
    • cakik'an
  • Purple
    • cakirax
  • Green (since 'rax' is shared for both 'green' and 'blue', the natives understood that 'green' could be more correctly identified with the following)
    • raxk'an
