Giordano B. Beretta and Nathan M. Moroney, "Color naming: color scientists do it between Munsell sheets of color", Proc. SPIE 7528, 75280V (2010); doi:10.1117/12.846957

The paper introduces such important concepts as automatic color term translation through colorimetry and crowd-sourcing, as well as the experimental proof that color naming on emissive displays correlates to color naming on reflective media. This paper is also suggests the use of widely available standards such as the Munsell Sheets of Color in order to compare the results of different experiments.
