"Imagine how difficult it would be to describe people or objects if you couldn't refer to attributes such as shape, size, and color. People are often pointed out as being "the lady in the red dress" or "the large man wearing the blue suit." We identify and describe people and objects on the basis of such attributes as taste, odor, texture, size, shape, and color. Attributes may be referred to as the properties, characteristics, or qualities that something has; the words all basically mean the same thing."--First paragraph.
