PSY 360 WEEK 4 DQ 2 How does language affect thought and how does language diversity affect the cognitive process Well I know when I sit to ponder it is usually in words and my language Yes I also think in pictures and colors sometimes even sounds however my internal thoughts have a unique language If I were given a problem at work it would be very difficult to think about solving it without words or symbols For this reason language and its diverse thoughts shape one another Benjamin Whorf formulated the Whorfian hypothesis of linguistic relativity the idea that language shapes thought According to Whorf people whose language provides numerous terms for distinguishing subtypes within a category actually perceive the world differently from people with a more limited linguistic range Subsequent research has not generally supported the hypothesis although language is central to many abstract concepts and many forms of reasoning Thought also shapes language and language evolves to express new concepts For instance the Hanunoo people of the Philippines have 92 names for rice Because rice is critically important to the Honunoo it is not accident that their language provides words to describe distinctions in its appearance shape texture and use Kowalski amp Westen 2005 p 254 Another example would be the rhetoric politicians use to in uence thinking Something that was recently seen with regard to the previous presidential debate Sometimes when things are said so eloquently it does not matter what is being said it just sounds good and we agree Fluffy words References Kowalski R Westen D 2005 Psychology 4th ed Hoboken NJ
