Secondary Terms Next in the structure of the field come the secondary terms. The criteria used for determining which colour terms are of a secondary, and sometimes supporting nature are: a. e. (unrestricted specification) - it will be classified as secondary. Thus VBK* (Zech. 6:3,7) or pity* (Zech. 1:8) cannot be considered 'primary', b. c above) and is transparently connected to the latter, it is classified as 'secondary'. (Thus D2mx<0'TK ,dnKtt from the non-attested O-TN*). c. The signification of the secondary term is included in that of a primary term.

IINfl is somewhat indicative of the T T relative weight of each term in its sector. The principle of chromaticity is taken to be the chief motivation for the creation of colour terms, although this is not valid for every case. There is no firm distinction between direct colour • • references (DTK) and indirect colour connotations (DTTK). Lastly, the organization of the sectors as mutually exclusive complementary units is far from clear: 'red' and 'black', for example, are discussed separately; as a result, there is no awareness of the non-chromatic denotations of various colour terms.

L^ (place name), fl3(1)3t> (frankincense) - each element in the series refers to a different 'reality'; hence they are homophonouSiperhaps etymologically identical but semantically separate lexemes. Finally, inty is the most limited: it has one secondary derived term, one certain term for object or concept, and two terms that are hapax legomena but seem to be related to it. Thus, the total for Ihia is, at the most, four directly derived lexemes. To summarize this point: the existence of colour terms that are employed as structural sub-components of different functions within the area designated by the primary terms, when the subordinate terms can be shown as morphological derivations of the primary terms, strengthens the status of the latter as primary governing elements within the same framework.
