Usage notes[edit]

  • The distinction between gray and brown in Turkish is rather recent. The word boz covers both the colors, but it's usually thought of as a color in-between.
    The word gri (loaned from French word gris) covers only gray, and the word kahverengi (lit. coffee color, a neologism) covers only brown.
