fails to convince,
This review is from: Rethinking Linguistic Relativity (Studies in the Social and Cultural Foundations of Language) (Hardcover)
Research about linguistic relativity promises fascinating reading. Unfortunately, the majority of articles in the book are dry, dusty and full of overly academic language. The only piece really worth reading is Bowerman's article on the spacial categories of children which shows how differences in the perception of spacial relationsships (up/down, into, out of...) are linguistically encoded.
