That salmon is a form of pink I can agree with. I can see that if you add white to orange, you end up with apricot. However, I would no more call apricot a pale orange that I would call pink a pale red. To do so is incorrect in my dialect of English, even though people are starting to do so in recent years. It's the same with pale purple - to me there is no such thing. It is lavender, lilac or mauve. I truly had never heard anyone talk of pale purple until the last decade. Dialect differences are breaking down with universal access to streaming media.
