Every person in Thailand memorizes the seven colors of the rainbow in Kindergarten. The idea that there are two blues is fundamental in Thai language. There is not a single word or category to group the colors that the English speaker would call sky blue and navy. They are two distinct colors and categories in the Thai language. Thai speakers have difficulty understanding why English is so imprecise when dealing with these two distinctly different colors. unsigned comment by 62.215.3.66 (talk) .
