Usage notesEdit

  • The distinction between gray and brown in Turkish is rather recent. The word boz covers both colors, but has a connotation of being the color of bare soil and is usually thought of as a somewhat indetermined, possibly uneven, in-between color.
    The word gri (loaned from French word gris) covers only gray, and the word kahverengi (lit. “coffee color”, a neologism) covers only brown.
