Colors In Punjabi

Color is formed when the spectrum of light interacts with the spectral sensitivities of the light receptors in the eye. Physical features such as light, reflection, absorption, and emission spectra are also used to correlate color categories and physical parameters with objects or materials.

As well as learning the names of the colors, it's also important to learn what adjectives they can be paired with. For example, you wouldn't say colorful black or vibrant grey. Luckily these rules apply across languages, so you can just take the rules of your native language and apply them to Punjabi.
