The article linked above from The Guardian refers to an academic paper that can be read in its entirety here.

If you’ve watched the first couple of episodes of Stephen Fry’s “Planet Word” series, you will have noted that he touched on the concept of linguistic relativity there. It’s a fascinating topic, and this article is well worth reading.

Beware: contains the ‘f’ and ‘c’ words, among others.
