Answers to Tokana colour test (was: Re: Sounds like...)

Here are the correct answers:

has     white
kulhe   green
kote    black
sane    red
lohne   brown
hemak   dark grey
lune    blue
laite   yellow
hiem    light/blue grey

Nobody got more than 2 correct, and everybody got different
ones correct.  (I think the only repeat is that two people
got "has" correct.)  I don't know what this means, but I
guess it suggests that sound-appropriateness is a matter of
personal taste.

Now I'm waiting to hear the correct answers to the Elet
Anta test...
