Watch Lera Boroditsky’s TED Talk on “How Language Shapes the Way We Think”
Answer the following questions (be sure to answer each part of the question thoroughly):
Do you know which direction you are facing? (North, South, East or West) Why not?
How would you communicate to your friend if you could never use numbers (1, 2, 3, etc.)? Would that make life difficult? Why?
How do the concepts that Lera discussed help you understand both the use of perception and language as it is used in your daily communication?
