Paper Abstract

This paper presents a flexible system for describing colors which links everyday language to color order systems. The structure based on that of the Natural Color System (NCS), has reflectance points which are defined and named. The structure is illustrated and an account is given of the processes used to establish the system of color names and modifying adjectives which identify the reference points.
