Color gives emotion.

Emotion can be described in words half the time.

I would describe color to a blind person as: the visual perceptual property corresponding in humans to the categories called red, yellow, blue and others. Color derives from the spectrum of light (distribution of light energy versus wavelength) interacting in the eye with the spectral sensitivities of the light receptors. Color categories and physical specifications of color are also associated with objects, materials, light sources, etc., based on their physical properties such as light absorption, reflection, or emission spectra.

Typically, only features of the composition of light that are detectable by humans (wavelength spectrum from 380 nm to 740 nm, roughly) are included, thereby objectively relating the psychological phenomenon of color to its physical specification. Because perception of color stems from the varying sensitivity of different types of cone cells in the retina to different parts of the spectrum, colors may be defined and quantified by the degree to which they stimulate these cells. These physical or physiological quantifications of color, however, do not fully explain the psychophysical perception of color appearance.

All hail Helen Keller's educator.

On topic: I'll tell them what I feel when I see those colors.

Hahahaha.

I would just describe it as an emotion, or what I feel corresponds to it.

Green would be nature, the smell of grass
yellow would be happiness, the feel of bright light, the warmth of your barefeet on a sidewalk on a sunny day
black would be sorrow, depression, hate
blue would be the smell of the sea
red when you're hot, warm, fuzzy, angry
white forgetfulness, feeling faint, empty O.O

Eeeeeeeeeehhhh...yeah. *not confident*

D:

I don't know. Something like that. ;OO

"I cannot say what I have never experienced before." Honesty speaking I have no idea what I would do.

just thought about the question and realized how hard it was


Have you seen the movie, "Mask" (1985)??
In one of the scenes, the main character shows/describes colors to a blind girl by having her touch things that are hot/cold/soft to communicate to her what colors are.
I am sure that no blind person could ever know what colors are like-- just like deaf people can't ever understand music, but putting the effort to communicate to them is quite meaningful.
