Relativistic implications of a natural-language-based format for thought

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 25 (6):688-689 (2002)
Abstract
I will argue (contra Carruthers) that accepting natural language as the format of many of our thoughts should entail accepting a version of Whorfian relativism and that, rather than something to be avoided, evidence from bilingual cognition suggests that incorporating this idea into future research would yield further insights into the cognitive functions of natural language.
