Friday 07 Sep 2007: Blue in Russian
In contrast to languages like English and Dutch, Russian does not have a single word to denote the colour blue. Instead, it treats light blue (голубой) and dark blue (синий) as separate colours, similar to what English and Dutch do for "red" and "light red" (i.e. "pink").
