    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 "c˘r 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.
