Language Shapes Thought: Rethinking on Linguistic Relativity

International College of Chinese Studies, Shanghai Normal University, Shanghai, China
Abstract—We reviewed the researches on linguistic relativity in color, space and time domains, and rethink the relationship between language and perception to support the idea that language interact with other cognitive processes and shape the perception and thought of human. Language, perception and action are not separated systems, but are closely interconnected and highly interacted to some extent. And language plays a constructive role in object affordances, which do not only require low-level processes of action and motor control, but depend on the language knowledge as well.

Index Terms—color, space, time, linguistic relativity, OBJECT affordances
