>Color and language, both, fascinate me.

**Same here.

>Language:  It appears from encounters I've had, and texts that I've read,
>that blue and red are virtually one in Chinese. We divide the spectrum in
>different ways.

**And I believe, when I was teaching spec ed, somewhere I had a 
workshop on cultural differences/languages and learned that in some 
native American cultures there was only one word which meant warm 
colors and one word for cool. "Warm" and "cool", of course, may mean 
different things in different language/cultures. :-)
