Or you may have read about people who have the same word for green and blue,
who we are to imagine not perceiving the difference in color between a leaf and
the sky as vividly as we do. The whole idea is a kind of ongoing promo from the
worlds of linguistics, anthropology, and psychology, the adjargon typified by the
subtitle of Guy Deutscher's Through the Language Glass, “Why the world looks
different in other languages.” The notion is, for better or for worse, mesmerizing.

Language also changes under the pressure of social or cultural factors, and is
not driven solely by an internal logic in total isolation from society. i2i the
grammatical structure of languages predisposes speakers to certain thought
patterns. Thus it is suggested that English speakers are more inductive and
French speakers are more deductive, since ad]ectives precede nouns in English,
but follow them in French. The Hopi Indians allegedly have a different perception
of time because ...
