<p>Ther permutation invariance of the metric used by Lindsey & Brown is visible in how the yellow/green immediate neighbour to <i>cachii</i> is placed 3rd most remote; while purple and disjoint red/brown and dark blue are placed far closer. The Amuzgo color words, as ranked by the metric are on the far left. One might expect that neighboring color words should rank high in a metric that accurately compares distributions of color naming responses; however we can notice that the basic color words immediately neighboring <i>cachii</i> at the top left come <i>last</i> in the ranking.</p>
