Talk the Talk: Colours in Himba

Tuesday 13th September / presented by Daniel Midgley

Not every language uses the same words for colours.

English has about 11 colour terms, while other languages get by with two or three. And it seems that people whose language uses different colour terms are able to easily tell the difference between colours that look just the same to us. Does our language warp our perception of reality?

UWA linguist Daniel Midgley brings it into focus on this week’s Talk the Talk.
