Transcript of 04.07 Review and Project Milestone

Whorf’s linguistic determinism theory
Whorf's theory of linguistic determinism states that the language we use controls our way of thinking and can determine our behavior. I really agree with his theory because I think language does play a huge part in our way thinking and behaving. Whenever I'm talking to somebody, I feel, as though, I can tell a lot about a person by just their word choice and how they phrase their sentences. For example, if they use a lot of slang or they have an accent, etc. I think Whorf's theory is an important theory in the topic of language.
Theory Of Universal Grammar
The theory of universal grammar states that all languages have almost the same or similar grammatical structure. This makes it easier for kids to pick up languages. Being bilingual myself, I agree with this theory. My first-language is Urdu but I learned English when I as well when I was very little. They both have similar grammatical structures. For example, they both follow the rules use an adjective before a noun or the subject usually follows a verb.
Functional Fixedness
Functional fixedness is a concept that defines the inability to see an object besides it's typical purpose or function. I'm not the most creative person in the world and struggle with functional fixedness most of the time when problem solving. For example, when I was in elementary school, one of my teacher would present us random objects and tell us to make something out of it. They were things like blocks, paper clips, strings of threads, etc. Needless, to say, I wasn't a huge fan of that activity. I still struggle to look at objects beyond their typical purpose but I'm trying to over come this problem.
