color FF0080 lightness=50%, saturation=100%, hue=270 degrees.
color 8000FF lightness=50%, saturation=100%, hue=330 degrees.

Plus the first eight.

Adpihi will have 27 basic color terms.
That’s more than the limit Berlin and Kay say any natlang has, but not outlandishly more; just about twice as many.

Only eight of these are among Adpihi’s basically-termed colors.
I think, though, Adpihi will have polymorphemic or derived or phrasal terms for these colors.
Ones simple enough for first-graders to learn and say and understand.

I think an adult’s coloring box should probably contain about 125 colors.
(Maybe more if they’re a pro or an expert amateur.)
#rrggbb where each of #rr #gg and #bb varies independently through {#00, #40, #80, #bf, #ff}.

First there’s black and white, which have undefined saturation and undefined hue.
color #000000 lightness=0%
color #ffffff lightness=100%

Then there’s the rest of the gray scale; all colors with saturation=0%. (Their hue is undefined.)
color #404040 lightness=25%, saturation=0%.
color #808080 lightness=50%, saturation=0%.
color #bfbfbf lightness=75%, saturation=0%.

There are thirty-six more colors with lightness=50%.
Twenty-four have saturation=100%, and another twelve have saturation=50%.
color #0000ff lightness=50%, saturation=100%, hue=0 degrees.
color #0040ff lightness=50%, saturation=100%, hue=15 degrees.
color #0080ff lightness=50%, saturation=100%, hue=30 degrees.
color #00bfff lightness=50%, saturation=100%, hue=45 degrees.
color #00ffff lightness=50%, saturation=100%, hue=60 degrees.
color #00ffbf lightness=50%, saturation=100%, hue=75 degrees.
color #00ff80 lightness=50%, saturation=100%, hue=90 degrees.
color #00ff40 lightness=50%, saturation=100%, hue=105 degrees.
color #00ff00 lightness=50%, saturation=100%, hue=120 degrees.
color #40ff00 lightness=50%, saturation=100%, hue=135 degrees.

color #8000ff lightness=50%, saturation=100%, hue=330 degrees.
color #4000ff lightness=50%, saturation=100%, hue=345 degrees.

color #bf8080 lightness=62%, saturation=33%, hue=240 degrees.

The 216 “web-safe” colors’ RGB notation will consist of all #rrggbb where each of #rr and #gg and #bb varies independently through
the six-element set { #00 | #33 | #66 | #99 | #CC | #FF }.
These can be found on Wikipedia.
Anybody who wants to design webpages with color will probably familiarize themselves with these.

A 343-color set can be generated from the seven-element set of byte-values:
{#00, #2a, #55, #80, #aa, #d4, #ff}.
This will include both the 27-color set and the 64-color set posted previously.
I think anyone who wants to be semi-professional or A-team amateur about color would use them.

A 729-color set can be generated from
{#00, #20, #40, #60, #80, #9f, #bf, #df, #ff}.
In addition to the 125 colors posted before,
This will include colors with lightness=25% and saturation=50%; as well as some with lightness=75% and saturation=50%.
Additionally it will include colors with lightness=50% and saturation=75%; and some with lightness=50% and saturation=25%.
That might already be considered too many colors?
The circle of 48 colors with lightness=50% and saturation=100% would vary hue from 0 degrees to 352.5 degrees by 7.5 degrees.
I think 7.5 degrees may be just under the just-noticeable-difference for hue.
(The L=50% S=75% circle of 36 colors would vary hue from 0 degrees to 350 degrees by 10 degrees.
( In my opinion that’s not too small a difference.)

To get L=25% S=25%, or L=25% S=75%, or L=75% S=25%, or L=75% S=75%, we’d have to use the 17-value byte set
{#00 #10 #20 #30 #40 #50 #60 #70 #80 #8f #9f #af #bf #cf #df #ef #ff}.
That would be 17^3 = 4913 colors; too many in my opinion.

That’s 11+1+2+2+3+2 = 21 colors for each of these 6 hues.
That’s 126 of these colors, plus 7 grays, giving us 133 colors so far.
There’s another 210 colors available in this scheme.

color #d42a55 H=345 degrees, S=67%, L=50%

That’s 24 colors with S=67% and L=50%, hues stepping from 0 degrees to 345 degrees by increments of 15 degrees.

color #aa5555 H=0 degrees, S=33%, L=50%.
color #aa8055 H=30 degrees, S=33%, L=50%.

color #aa55aa H=300 degrees, S=33%, L=50%.
color #aa5580 H=330 degrees, S=33%, L=50%.

That’s 12 colors with S=33% and L=50%, stepping H from 0 to 330 degrees in increments of 30 degrees.

color #808080 H undefined, S=0%, L=50%

That’s 1 color on the gray scale with S=0% and L=50%; hue is undefined when S=0%.

++++++++++==========

So there are 36 + 24 + 12 + 1 = 73 colors in this set with L=50%.
The 36 with S=100% were already covered above.
So was the 1 with S=0%.

And so were the 12=6*2 with H= 0 or 60 or 120 or 180 or 240 or 300, and S=67% or 33%.

So 49 of those colors were covered before; but 24 are new so far.

(There are still 186 colors in this scheme that haven’t been covered.
They all have Hue not a multiple of 60 degrees, S not 100% nor 0%, and L not 50% nor 0% nor 100%.)

I’m going to try to take one hue (I’ll choose 0 degrees) through every combination of lightness and saturation where both lightness and saturation vary independently through the five-value set {0%, 25%, 50%, 75%, 100%}

First off; if Lightness=0% or Lightness=100%, then neither Saturation nor Hue are defined.
color #000000 Lightness=0% (black)
color #ffffff Lightness=100% (white)

Then, if Saturation=0%, Hue is not defined. The color is on the gray-scale.
color #808080 Lightness=50%, Saturation=0%
color #404040 Lightness=25%, Saturation=0%
color #bfbfbf Lightness=75%, Saturation=0%

……….

Then we get 12 shades of Hue=0 degrees (red).

The first one is from the eight-color set discussed in previous replies.
color #ff0000 Lightness=50%, Saturation=100%, Hue=0 degrees

The next two are from the 27-color set discussed in previous replies.
color #800000 Lightness=25%, Saturation=100%, Hue=0 degrees
color #ff8080 Lightness=75%, Saturation=100%, Hue=0 degrees

The next one is from the 125-color set discussed in previous replies.
color #bf4040 Lightness=50%, Saturation=50%, Hue=0 degrees

The next four are from the 729-color set mentioned, but not much discussed, in earlier replies.
color #602020 Lightness=25%, Saturation=50%, Hue=0 degrees
color #9f6060 Lightness=50%, Saturation=25%, Hue=0 degrees
color #df2020 Lightness=50%, Saturation=75%, Hue=0 degrees
color #df9f9f Lightness=75%, Saturation=50%, Hue=0 degrees

The last four are from the 4913-color set barely mentioned in an earlier post.
color #701010 Lightness=25%, Saturation=75%, Hue=0 degrees
color #503030 Lightness=25%, Saturation=25%, Hue=0 degrees
color #cfafaf Lightness=75%, Saturation=25%, Hue=0 degrees
color #ef8f8f Lightness=75%, Saturation=75%, Hue=0 degrees

That’s all with Lightness and Saturation each a multiple of 25% and Hue=0 degrees.

……….

There are other Hue=0 degrees colors with #rrggbb as close as possible to multiples of #10.
I think there are about 28 of them.

The next six colors come from the 125-color set discussed in previous replies.
color #400000 Lightness=12.5%, Saturation=100%, Hue=0 degrees
color #804040 Lightness=37.5%, Saturation=33.333%, Hue=0 degrees
color #bf0000 Lightness=37.5%, Saturation=100%, Hue=0 degrees
color #bf8080 Lightness=62.5%, Saturation=33.333%, Hue=0 degrees
color #ff4040 Lightness=62.5%, Saturation=100%, Hue=0 degrees
color #ffbfbf Lightness=87.5%, Saturation=100%, Hue=0 degrees

……….

The next twenty-two (?) of the following colors come from the 729-color set discussed in previous replies.
color #200000 Lightness=6.25%, Saturation=100%, Hue=0 degrees
color #402020 Lightness=18.75%, Saturation=33.333%, Hue=0 degrees
color #600000 Lightness=18.75%, Saturation=100%, Hue=0 degrees
color #604040 Lightness=31.25%, Saturation=20%, Hue=0 degrees
color #802020 Lightness=31.25%, Saturation=60%, Hue=0 degrees
color #806060 Lightness=43.75%, Saturation=14.2857%, Hue=0 degrees
color #9f0000 Lightness=31.25%, Saturation=100%, Hue=0 degrees
color #9f2020 Lightness=37.5%, Saturation=66.667%, Hue=0 degrees
color #9f4040 Lightness=43.75%, Saturation=42.8571%, Hue=0 degrees
color #9f8080 Lightness=56.25%, Saturation=14.2857%, Hue=0 degrees
color #bf2020 Lightness=43.75%, Saturation=71.4285%, Hue=0 degrees
color #bf6060 Lightness=56.25%, Saturation=42.8571%, Hue=0 degrees
color #bf9f9f Lightness=68.75%, Saturation=20%, Hue=0 degrees
color #df0000 Lightness=43.75%, Saturation=100%, Hue=0 degrees
color #df4040 Lightness=56.25%, Saturation=71.4285%, Hue=0 degrees
color #df6060 Lightness=62.5%, Saturation=66.667%, Hue=0 degrees
color #df8080 Lightness=68.75%, Saturation=60%, Hue=0 degrees
color #dfbfbf Lightness=81.25%, Saturation=33.333%, Hue=0 degrees
color #ff2020 Lightness=56.25%, Saturation=100%, Hue=0 degrees
color #ff6060 Lightness=68.75%, Saturation=100%, Hue=0 degrees
color #ff9f9f Lightness=81.25%, Saturation=100%, Hue=0 degrees
color #ffdfdf Lightness=93.75%, Saturation=100%, Hue=0 degrees
