Linguistic Relativity on Colour Naming

A classic debate on the relation between language and colour perception has been outlined. This debate entails whether human perception of colour is subject to language relativistic effects. This concept focuses on various disciplines beyond linguistics, including visual neurobiology, anthropology of vision, psychology, sociology and cultural relativity.

Colour perception and naming has been a popular research area, producing studies that have both supported and questioned linguistic relativity's validity. At one pole of this debate is the relativist stance, which holds that our perception of the world is shaped by the semantic categories of our native language, and at the other pole the Universalist side claims that the biology of all human beings is all the same, so the development of colour terminology has absolute universal constraints.
