Description

Whorfian effects, in the classical sense of diversity in non-linguistic cognition that is correlated with the diversity in semantic categories, are addressed in this chapter through the presentation of a series of experiments that show such a correlation with respect to conventional figurative expressions used in English and Mandarin for talking about temporal relations.
