The question for asking colors is constructed similar to the way it´s done in English:

    Eng: What color is XXX?

    Tr: XXX ne renk? (Here, ne is what and renk is color)

The answer is also simple:

    Eng: XXX is red.

    Tr: XXX k覺rm覺z覺.

However, note the difference in word ordering when you want to add a color (or any adjective) to an indefinite noun.

    Eng: A red XXX.

    Tr: K覺rm覺z覺 bir XXX. (Not ´Bir k覺rm覺z覺 XXX´)

 

Now, try to understand the following sentences. English translations are below the Turkish sentences.

    1. Bu araba aç覺k mavi.

    2. Evim koyu k覺rm覺z覺.

    3. Gözlerin ne renk?

    4. Beyaz bir gömlek ald覺m.

 

1. This car is light blue. 2. My house is dark red. 3. What color are your eyes? 4. I bought a white shirt.
