Unformatted text preview: partic pant’s language
(i.e. either abs olute or relative). W hile this s hows a c orrelation between language and thought, it does not
s how c aus ation; indeed, both language and thought m ay be s haped by s om e other elem ent of c ulture,
like s c hooling or literac y or oc c upation. Moreover, I’m worried that as king partic ipants to pic k an arrow
“like the one they s aw before” is s o obvious ly am biguous that it invites pragm atic reas oning about what
the experim enter wants to s ee--and that this judgm ent, not s patial reas oning per s e, is s haped by the
language’s prefered fram e of referenc e.
