About This Event
The idea that language we speak impacts the way we perceive the world has been discussed for hundreds of years. In the last few decades, as more and more experiments began to allude that such thing might be possible, scientists began to pay more attention to this phenomenon. Do speakers of different languages think differently? Is our cognitive ability limited by the language we speak and will learning a new language give us new insights into the world we live in? These and other such questions will be discussed in this presentation.
