Basic color terms; their universality and evolution by Brent Berlin ( Book )
39 editions published between 1969 and 2000 in English and held by 947 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The work reported in this monograph was begun in the winter of 1967 in a graduate seminar at Berkeley. Many of the basic data were gathered by members of the seminar and the theoretical framework presented here was initially developed in the context of the seminar discussions. Much has been discovered since 1969, the date of original publication, regarding the psychophysical and neurophysical determinants of universal, cross-linguistic constraints on the shape of basic color lexicons, and something, albeit less, can now also be said with some confidence regarding the constraining effects of these language-independent processes of color perception and conceptualization on the direction of evolution of basic color term lexicons." http://www.loc.gov/catdir/description/cam029/99012619.html
