Review of C. L. Hardin and luissa maffi, editors, color categories in thought and language. Cambridge: Cambridge university press, 1997 & Robert maclaury, color and cognition in mesoamerica: Constructing categories as vantages. Austin: University of texas [Book Review]


In a message posted to one of the cognitive science discussion groups the author asked, to paraphrase roughly, what should be read to get an up-to-date account of research into color naming? My advice is (and was) to consider the two books under review here: C. L. Hardin and Luisa Maffi’s excellent collection of essays on color language research; Robert MacLaury’s magnum opus on color naming and cognition.
