The World’s Language
Linguistic determinism: limitation of language is limitation of knowledge and expression, how you communicate with others and how you are understood
English has words that distinguish between other concepts which are closely linked. Some of the vocabulary found in English does not exist in other languages such as French with mind and brain, house and home.
On the other hand other languages have vocabulary that we do not. This can often depend on the culture. In the Arctic region, for example, the people use 50 different words to describe various types of snow.
