130). In lieu of this, languages are lexically divided into two; identity and differentiation. In the identity category, a single word connotes both the finger and hand. In the differentiation category, one word connotes the ‘hand’ while another different word denotes the “finger(s)”.
The arithmetic base which is used in construction of numeral expressions is one of the most important traits of the mathematical edifice of linguistic expression for numerals. In this case, “base” connotes a scenario where the numeral system is expressed as “n” raised to some numerical expression such as xn + y (Dryer et al. 131). With regard to this, world languages are divided into various categories including; decimal, pure vigesimal and hybrid-vigesimal decimal.
In the current models of universals and evolution theory of basic color terms, 3 universal colour categories are embraced; primary color, disjunctive (composite) and intersective (derived) category (Dryer et al. 132). In the theory of color opponency, six primary colours are recognized; white, black, yellow, red, blue and green. The composite colors and derived colors categories consists of fuzzy unions of the primary colors. The and colors are 2 pairs of essential opponent chromatic colors while form a pair of essential opponent chromatic colors. Black and white can be mixed to produce gray while red and green or yellow and blue cannot be mixed to produce any relevant pigment. However, blue and yellow can be combined to produce a green pigment. French contains 6 categories of non-derived colors. This therefore implies that French basically uses the following primary colors;
Many scholars have studied categorization of colors as a window into human language and cognizance; it has been used pragmatically in image database recovery systems
