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.

I publish an newsletter called The Winged Schwa, where I write about linguistics, language learning, and writing itself – in other words, how languages work, how to learn them, and what to do with the ones you've learned.

Why "The Winged Schwa"? Schwa is the name of the vowel in all of the bold syllables in this sentence. In the International Phonetic Alphabet, it's written as an upside-down "e", like so: [ə]. It's become a sort of symbol for linguistics as a field. And in this case, it has wings because it flies into your inbox every week.

If you're a lover of language, I think you'll enjoy it.

Best newsletter I receive.
