Introduction



We are living in a colorful world. Our life can not be deprived from different colors, neither could our language. There are many color words in our language, such as black, white, red, green, blue, yellow, etc. “Three aspects of meaning are involved in each color word:basic meanings,scientific meanings and the cultural connotations.”(Pan, 1997) Color words are burdened with cultural connotations overwhelmed by the associations and history. Language is a mirror, in front of which cu
lture is reflected. As the essence of language, idioms whose meanings are not clear from the meaning of individual word are the best examples to reflect the culture. Idioms with color words are no exception, in which, the cultural connotations of different color words are well reflected. The same color word may have different connotations when combined wit
