Language and Thought

Does language determine, influence, or merely represent thought? We'll explore the Sapir-Whorf debate by reading and discussing key texts in linguistics, anthropology, psychology, & cognitive science.

My name is Colin Gorrie. I'm a linguist1 who is building an online platform for teaching the internet about language and linguistics, and you've arrived at the front door. Welcome!

My mission is to help as many people as possible learn about language and linguistics. I do this through my newsletter, as well as on Twitter (@colingorrie), by teaching courses, and by writing notes in my digital garden.

I also write essays on this site, and I am sometimes lucky enough to talk with interesting people elsewhere on the internet.

Want more?

I write a newsletter for people who love language. Topics include linguistics, language learning, and writing. Sign up here:
