Description
Abstract (cited)
This paper analyses the polysemy of the colour terms blawr, can, glas, gwelw, and gwyrdd in early Welsh poetry. It uses recent theoretical work on the historical semantics of colour terms in conjunction with cross-cultural anthropological colour studies to argue for a multisensory approach to understanding the Middle Welsh colour system.
