Kristen from the Daily Dorkmonger sent me this article regarding culture and language. There are new findings suggesting that language “influences the way people see the world.”
The theory of how language influences culture is known as the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis, or linguistic relativity.
The article provides some very interesting information. There is one language where speakers don’t have words for “left” or “right.” Instead, they use spacial directions such as north, south, east and west.
And it seems Russian speakers are better at visually discriminating the color blue because they have more words for light and dark blues.
