Subject: Linguistics

Question:

What is the theory of linguistic relativity?

Inactive
Mary S.
Answer:

Linguistic relativity claims that the language which a person speaks has an effect on non-linguistic cognition. For example, that speakers of languages such as English, which highlights manner of motion (walking, running, etc.), will remember this aspect of a scene more easily than speakers of languages which highlight path (ascending, etc.), as in Spanish. It is also known as the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis, having been popularized by the work of early linguists Edward Sapir and Benjamin Whorf. Early linguistic relativists held that this effect was inescapable, but the majority of modern theorists tend to believe that it is only a tendency among many others. Still, the theory remains contentious even today.
