Sure, there’s many shades of purple, but I’d be curious if there’s a point on the color spectrum that about half of Klingons would call Doq and half would call SuD. Maybe even two points, one kind of purply one, and one kind of orangy-yellowy one.

KGT says that neither *Doq* nor *SuD* include violet or purple, and 
suggests without stating outright that this may be related to the 
Klingon visual range.

TalkNow! translates /purple/ as *Doq 'ej SuD.* Whether this is an actual 
Klingon phrase or a cop-out by a Klingon who could only intellectually 
understand what purple is without seeing it is not told.
