Abstract

The purpose of this paper was to observe the way in which English common plant names which are formed with the help of colour names are represented in the Romanian language. The paper approaches horticultural terminology by analysing English common plant names. We are interested just in those plant names which are formed with the help of colour names. We are not only trying to establish the connection between the English concepts and the German ones in terms of equivalency, but we also trie to analyse terms that observe a German counterpart as well as the ones that do not.
