Gomen ne, mina-san. I've been so busy this past year or so (as evidenced by my retirement). I'm not sure how many more lessons I'll be able to get together for the group here, but here is one I had on my computer, but never got around to posting.

Basic colors in Japanese.

iro: color
ao (aoi): blue
aka (akai): red
chairo: brown
daidaiiro/ orenji : orange
kiiro/ iero : yellow
kuro (kuroi): black
midori: green
momoiro/ pinku: pink
murasaki: purple
shiro (shiroi): white

Sometimes, when used as an adjective, the character "i" is added to the end. For example, "aka" becomes "akai" when describing something that is red. (Colors in which this occurs are in parenthesis above)

"akai tori ga ookii desu ne"
The red bird is big, isn't it.

Renshuu shimashou! (Let's practice!)

Sukina iro wa nan desu ka. 
What is your favorite color?

[Color] ga suki desu.
I like [color].

Let's also practice describing things by color using the vocabulary we already know from previous lessons!

@tsa-kun: you should use "to" in place of "and" !

now let's make some sentences mentioning "colors"

Momoiro no skaura ga Kirei desu! (Pink cherry blossom are beautiful)

Joshi no kokoro ga pinku desu! (Hearts of girls are Pink)

Aoi sora to umi ga suki datta! (I love blue sky and sea)

As the Light begins to intensify, so does my misery,
and I wonder how it is possible to hurt so much when nothing is wrong.

Quote by Tsasuao ga suki desu and murasaki.

Actually it would be "ao to murasaki ga suki desu"

@Monu-chan: you don't have to add "no hana" in there, you can just say "momoiro no Sakura"

@renlilica: if by "aka no mei" you mean "red eyes", eyes in Japanese is written as "me"
