Answer to Question #52586 in Other Biology for pamela moranda
A centuries-old question is how language influences perception of the world. The hypothesis isthat our perceptions are indelibly shaped by our language. Studies suggest that, well before they are fluent, infants and toddlers tend to generalize (i.e., perceive as similar) spatial relations based on the spatial predicate assignments in their native language. For example, Koreanlearning toddlers begin to notice differences between events that English-learning children do not readily notice as these events are classified by different spatial predicates in Korean but not in English.
