Citações Benjamin Whorf


„We dissect nature along lines laid down by our native language.“

—  Benjamin Lee Whorf
p. 213. ("Language is not simply a reporting device for experience but a defining framework for it" is a quote associated with Whorf but I've found that this has often been cited incorrectly. Would appreciated anyone who can insert the correct citation—drawn from the original manuscript—here. But I actually believe it is paraphrasing a sentence (on page 212 in that edition) which actually says, "Language is not merely a reproducing instrument for voicing ideas but rather is itself the shaper of ideas.” )
