Abstrakt

The article is an analysis of color verb system in Estonan, Finnish, and Hungarian. All of these languages have verbs that indicate stative (being of some color, e.f. 'being red'), inchoative (becoming of some color, e.g. 'turning red') or causative (changing the color of some object, e.g. 'make smth red'). Finnish, Estonian, and Hungarian color verbs are compared to each other and analyzed as a part of the grammatical system of each language. A formal analysis of these verbs is given within Conceptual Semantics framework.
