Linguistic Structure and Non-linguistic Cognition: English and Russian Blues Compared.
Laws, Glynis; And Others
Language and Cognitive Processes, v10 n1 p59-94 Feb 1995
Investigates the influence of linguistic structure on non-linguistic cognition by comparing Russian and English behavior on tasks involving the color blue. Russians, who differentiate this region into "dark blue" and "light blue," were expected to separate blues more often than English subjects for whom the colors belong to one lexical category.
