:: Sapir–Whorf Hypothesis ::
In linguistics, the Sapir–Whorf hypothesis postulates a systematic relationship
Between the grammatical categories of the language
A person speaks and how that person both understands
The world and behaves in it.
The hypothesis postulates that a particular language's nature influences
The habitual thought of its speakers:
That different language patterns yield different patterns of thought.
This idea challenges the possibility of perfectly representing
The world with language, because it implies that the mechanisms
Of any language condition the thoughts of its speaker community.
