    I'd suggest you either consult a dictionary or you Google for a Portuguese-English dictionary online. This way you'll have all the colors you want.

    I totally agree with your answer. We should not stimulate forum users with little or no initiative into delegating their basic work to others.

    Hugocar, there's also a spelling mistake in the list that would not have existed had a dictionary been consulted. There are two if you prefer "côr de rosa" to plain "rosa".

    By the way, I'm having trouble finding how to count from zero to ten thousand in Quechua. Could you write the numbers for me? LOL

    Oooops Thomas, I regret to tell you that there's a very super duper enormously humongous big time spelling mistake in your post! since long ago cor has had no accent! heheheeh just a joke and my point is: we don't have to be so hard on forum members (especially when we're not right...). peace, peace, please!

    it should be cor-de-rosa - Notice the hyphens too...

    bottom line is that both rosa and cor-de-rosa are fine

    Hankco is right, in Brazil you can use both "rosa" and "cor-de-rosa" (without accent).
    In Portugal the right way to write color is "côr" (with the accent).
    Is just a matter of grammatical differences between countries sharing the same language.
