How language shapes the way we think | Lera Boroditsky

A different language is a different vision of life-Federico Fellini

Language is so powerful that it is able to alter our worldview. It affects what we decide to focus on, and that influences our experience and thoughts. The language you speak changes and manipulates what you are able to conjure up and think about, including your imagination.
