Color Categories in Various Color Spaces
  DOI :  10.2352/CIC.2001.9.1.art00002  Published OnlineJanuary 2001

Using color names is one of the most important tools to communicate color information. We carried out a color naming experiment, where subjects were asked to sort 292 Munsell color samples under various light sources into eleven basic colors defined by Berlin and Kay. The experimental results were represented in various color spaces, the Munsell color space, the CIE (x, y) chromaticity diagram, the CIELAB space and the CIECAM97s (J, C, h) space. Performance of these color spaces for representing color names will be discussed.
