Great article.

〈Lost in Translation〉 (2010-07-23), by By Lera Boroditsky. >From The
Wall Street Journal.

“New cognitive research suggests that language profoundly influences
the way people see the world; a different sense of blame in Japanese
and Spanish”

no surprise to lispers.

though, standard caution apply here... do take the findings in the
story lightly, as such non-scientific writing usually are full of
vague notions, misleading, and sometimes outright incorrect.

Also, for those of you dumb mono-USers... perhaps it's time to pick up
another lang. lol

and, time to learn lojban too!
