Title Binumarien color categories
Date 1975
Description This paper has two aims. The first is to describe an ethnographically new system of color classification, Binumarien, a non-Austronesian or Papuan language of the Eastern Central Highlands of New Guinea2. In this connection we are particularly interested in relating our data to the Berlin and Kay (1969) theory of the universality of basic color terms. If one takes seriously the criticisms of possible English bilingual interference in the experimental studies, and questionable rules of inference in the interpretation of the nonexperimental studies (Hickerson 1971), then the theory is clearly in need of more and better data.
