Abstract:

The claim that crosslinguistic disparities foster differences in nonlinguistic
thought, often referred to as 'linguistic relativity', has for some time been
the subject of intense debate. For much of that time the debate was not
informed by much experimental work. Recently, however, there has been an
explosion of research on linguistic relativity, carried out by numerous
scholars interested in the interaction between language and nonlinguistic
cognition. This book surveys the rapidly accruing research on this topic, much
of it carried out in the last decade. Structured so as to be accessible to
students and scholars in linguistics, psychology, and anthropology, it first
introduces crucial concepts in the study of language and cognition. It then
explores the relevant experimentally oriented research, focusing independently
on the evidence for relativistic effects in spatial orientation, temporal
perception, number recognition, color discrimination, object/substance
categorization, gender construal, as well as other facets of cognition. This
is the only book to extensively survey the recent work on linguistic
relativity, and should serve as a critical resource for those concerned with
the topic.
