Brown is a color term, denoting a range of composite colors
produced by a mixture of orange, red, rose, or yellow with black.
The term is from Old English brn, in origin for any dusky or dark
shade of color. The Common Germanic adjective *brnoz, *brn meant
both dark colors and a glistening or shining quality, whence
burnish. The current meaning develops in Middle English from the
14th century. The adjective is applied to naturally occurring
colors, referring to animal fur, human hair, human skin
pigmentation (tans), partially charred or carbonized fiber as in
toasted bread and other foods, peat, withered leaves, etc. In terms
of the visible spectrum, "brown" refers to high wavelength hues,
yellow, orange, or red, in combination with low luminance or
saturation. Since brown may cover a wide range of the visible
spectrum, composite adjectives such as red brown, yellowish brown,
dark brown or light brown (amber). The brown and orange disks of
color are objectively identical, in identical gray surrounds, in
this image; their perceived color categories depend on what white
they are compared to.
