So, What of Sapir-Whorf?

Jury's still out...
  • need native speakers of Loglan/Lojban/Legvaf
  • need controlled (looooong-term!) experiments

My views on the hypothesis...
  • limits interpersonal communication (social mind)
  • restricts verbal/written memory (reinvent the wheel)
  • profound effect the invention of writing (a form of language) had
  • personally only noticed during meditation
  • I'm not yet fluent in Lojban
  • others claim to have expeirenced a change of perspective
