This study explores the use of English colour names in large datasets from informal Twitter messages and the well-structured corpus of Google Books. Because colour names in text have no directly associated chromatic stimuli, the corresponding colour categories of colour words was assessed from responses in an online colour naming experiment. A comparison of the frequency in the three datasets revealed that the mapping of colour names to perceptually uniform colour spaces does not reflect natural language colour distributions.
