Bulyth is a type VI: bedo, ulhyn, cemar, tulyc, cobo, dulh, baryn. All the other colours are described by adjectivalised nouns: pink = rhasyn "rose" grey = emyr "sky" purple = dulhyth "twilight" orange = thar "flame" "light" colours and "dark" colours are represented by "ar da" and "ar garu" which mean "of the sun" and "of the moon", so light blue is dulh ar da "blue of the sun" and dark green is cobo ar garu "green of the moon".
