WHAT DOES YELLOW PAGES MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Yellow Pages

Yellow pages

Yellow pages refers to a telephone directory of businesses, organized by category, rather than alphabetically by business name and in which advertising is sold. The directories were originally printed on yellow paper, as opposed to white pages for non-commercial listings. The traditional term yellow pages is now also applied to online directories of businesses. In many countries, including Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, and elsewhere, "Yellow Pages", as well as the "Walking Fingers" logo first introduced in the 1970s by the Bell System-era AT&T, are registered trademarks, though the owner varies from country to country, usually being held by the main national telephone company. However, in the United States, neither the name nor the logo were registered as trademarks by AT&T, and are freely used by several publishers.
