Yesterday i was listening to a group of linguists discussing the sapir-whorf hypothesis and how it's been debunked, and the conversation took an interesting turn where they all affirmed that all the research that has been done in the field of cognitive linguistics points to the fact that language cannot really change the way in which someone's mind works. I still find that to be hard to buy.
What does /lit/ think of this whole situation ?
