Yes, I’m that much of a nerd that I subscribe to Merriam-Webster’s Word of the Day — oh come on, you know vocab is fun, and the emails usually have a good etymology component.
But one of today’s definitions has me convinced Merriam-Webster employs colorblind people. They define “tangerine,” as “a moderate to strong reddish orange.” That sounds like a blood orange if you ask me; tangerine is more of a vibrant citrus orange with yellow undertones. How does that sound to you? Leave your new definitions of the color of tangerine in the comments.
