OSPMADRD 19: Language and Thought

Languages describe the world in different ways. In some languages, you have to say when an event happened (past, present, future, etc.), while in others it is obligatory to say how you know about the event (you saw it, you heard about it), or the gender of its participants. In some languages there is one word that covers blue-and-green, while in others there are many. Do these differences in the language you speak influence the way that you perceive, understand, and think? We will survey recent work on how languages affect thought, with a special emphasis on contrasts between Spanish and English. Assignments include reading original sources, essays synthesizing science with personal reflections, and (attempts at) replication of key experiments with friends and acquaintances.
