Linguistically speaking, if a language only has two words to describe colors (you know, some languages have 100 words for 'snow,' etc.), those words will mean something like "light" and "dark." If a language is going to have a third color word, that color will mean something like "red."Aaaand I thought you'd find that interesting. The end.
Wow ... so "what's black and white and red all over?" actually can be answered with "Languages, bitches. Language."
