Associative experiment

Dear Fellow Linguaphiles,

I see I am not the first one to be asking a favor in this area... Here is my agenda: I am writing a linguistic masters thesis that spans the use of color terms and some other things across the history of English literature. Somewhere along the way, the associative experiment  is one cornerstone that helps me tie my ideas in with real usage.

So please give me your first associations with the following colors:
black
white
red
green
blue
gray
brown
yellow

The associations should be native speaker and spontaneous. Ideally, I would ask you to give five for each color term, but as things are, please spare as much time as you can.

Yours gratefully,

lady_daereth
