    How language shapes the way we think (And in turn, how we write)

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by TimHarris, Apr 19, 2013.

    I came across this very well written article on how language shapes the way we think, and advice you to read through it. The research have been done by a Professor of Psychology at Stanford University named Lera Boroditsky, and talks widely about how we perceive several aspects of the world differently depending on what language we think in.

    I found the article extremely interesting, and it certainly made me think more about what my words actually convey to the reader rather than thinking my own world view is the one that my readers will see.
