I am writing a term paper about the role of adjectives and gender marking in efficient communication about English and German respectively. And I was wondering if there is any way/website/tool to compare the frequency of use of color words in both languages? Like, maybe English uses color words more frequently because it relies more on adjectives to predict nouns than German which rather relies on gender marking.
For frequency information on German, I highly recommend the Leipzig Wortschatz portal (here already querying for rot "red". It is based on contemporary newspaper texts and also has corpora for many other languages, including English.
