Pre-Relay Color List Assignment
Write down 10 of
the most interesting color words you can find (and the “basic” color group
each belongs to). By "interesting," I mean a more sophisticated
synonym for "red," "yellow," "blue," etc. (See example below.)
each color word, write down (in complete sentences) 1 or 2
associations you have with that word, explain why you have those
associations, and decide whether your color word has positive or negative
(color group: orange)
I associate “tangerine” with sunsets and
Florida. I associate it with Florida because tangerines are like oranges,
and Florida is famous for growing oranges. The reason I associate it with
“sunset” is because tangerine seems to be a very vibrant and juicy color.
To me, sunsets are also that same glowing orange shade and they ooze down
into the horizon the same way tangerine juice oozes and drips off your
chin. Overall, I think “tangerine” has positive connotations.
