Language as a Reflection of Culture: From Literal Meaning to Conceptual Awareness.
Rogers, Carmen Villegas
Canadian Modern Language Review, v52 n1 p48-58 Oct 1995
Illustrates one approach to presenting language as a reflection of culture, taking as a topic the marked tendency in French to use negative terms to express positive concepts. Negation in French becomes a fertile source of pedagogical activities since it allows reflection upon at least three points to help students go beyond the grammatical context.
