Color Me OCHRE


OCHRE is a ' ‘type of clayey soil (much used in pigments),’ from Old French ocre,

from Latin ochra , from Greek ochra , from ochros ‘pale yellow,’

of unknown origin.”

 To this definition from Dictionary.Com/Random House we can add “from the Semitic root of soil and agriculture words.

The most well-known of several Semitic 'soil'  and 'field' words

is Hebrew  איכר   EeKahR, farmer.

“Origin unknown?!” 
Gee, do you think the brownish-yellow,  soil-like color of OCHRE might be a factor?
