something that will always frustrate me:
I don’t get it, someone please explain.
Look at the Japanese names. Blue is Green and Green is Blue.
LOL And I spent 5 minutes reading back and forth…
i think that’s because for Japanese people word 青い (aoi) simultaneously means green and blue, that’s why they mixed up names of these characters. The same thing is with the use of letters “L” and “R”: how many times have you seen how Japanese mixed them?
Also, in Korean language word 파랗다 simultaneously means both green and blue too. So this is a special feature of Asian languages, I guess?
