Is there no cross-cultural evidence in colour categories of psychological laws, only of cultural rules?

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 20 (2):205-206 (1997)

Two points are made on the basis of (mainly) the cross-cultural psychological record. The first is that cross-cultural data indicate at least weak, nontrivial constraints on colour classification. The second is that exceptions to cross-cultural regularities as described by Saunders & van Brakel are compatible with the view that constraints on colour categories are probabilistic rather than deterministic
