Patterns of Connotation in Chinese and English Colour Terms.
Crisp, Peter; Chang, Zhang Yan
Chinese University Educational Journal, v15 n1 p50-59 Jun 1987
Discusses the cultural meaning of color terms in both Chinese and English. For example, in English, "yellow" connotes "cowardice," while in Chinese it connotes "pornography." Emphasizes the importance of the culturally-determined differences regarding color meaning associations, but recognizes that such perceptions occur within a common connotational framework. (GEA)
