Whorf describes how the syntactic-semantic structure of
a language becomes an underlying structure for the world
view or Weltanschauung of a people through the organization of the causal perception of the world and the
linguistic categorization of entities. As linguistic categorization emerges as a representation of worldview and
causality, it further modifies social perception and thereby
leads to a continual interaction between language and
perception.[3]

A comprehensive world view (or worldview) is the fundamental cognitive orientation of an individual or society
encompassing the entirety of the individual or society’s
knowledge and point of view. A world view can include
natural philosophy; fundamental, existential, and normative postulates; or themes, values, emotions, and ethics.[1]
The term is a calque of the German word Weltanschauung [ˈvɛlt.ʔanˌʃaʊ.ʊŋ] ( ), composed of Welt ('world')
and Anschauung ('view' or 'outlook').[2]

The hypothesis was well received in the late 1940s, but
declined in prominence after a decade. In the 1990s,
new research gave further support for the linguistic relativity theory, in the works of Stephen Levinson and his
team at the Max Planck institute for psycholinguistics at

group or culture watches and interprets the world and interacts with it. The German word is also in use in English, 1.2 Weltanschauung and cognitive philosophy
as well as the translated form world outlook or world view.

1.1

One of the most important concepts in cognitive
philosophy and cognitive sciences is the German concept
of Weltanschauung. This expression has often been used
to refer to the “wide worldview” or “wide world perception” of a people, family, or person. The Weltanschauung
of a people originates from the unique world experience
of a people, which they experience over several millennia.
The language of a people reflects the Weltanschauung of
that people in the form of its syntactic structures and untranslatable connotations and its denotations.

Origins
Linguistics

The founder of the idea that language and worldview
are inextricable is the Prussian philologist, Wilhelm von
Humboldt (1767–1835). Humboldt argued that language
was part of the creative adventure of mankind. Culture,
language and linguistic communities developed simultaneously, he argued, and could not do so without one another. In stark contrast to linguistic determinism, which
invites us to consider language as a constraint, a framework or a prison house, Humboldt maintained that speech
is inherently and implicitly creative. Human beings take
their place in speech and continue to modify language
and thought by their creative exchanges. Worldview remains a confused and confusing concept in English, used
very differently by linguists and sociologists. It is for this
reason that Underhill suggests five subcategories: worldperceiving, world-conceiving, cultural mindset, personal
world, and perspective (see Underhill 2009, 2011 &
2012).

The term 'Weltanschauung' is often wrongly attributed to
Wilhelm von Humboldt the founder of German ethnolinguistics (see Trabant). As Jürgen Trabant points out,
however, and as Underhll reminds us in his 'Humboldt,
Worldview and Language' (2009), Humboldt’s key concept was 'Weltansicht'. 'Weltanschauung', used first by
Kant and later popularized by Hegel, was always used in
German and later used in English to refer more to philosophies, ideologies and cultural or religious perspectives,
than to linguistic communities and their mode of apprehending reality.

'Weltansicht' was used by Humboldt to refer to the overarching conceptual and sensorial apprehension of reality
shared by a linguistic community (Nation). But HumEdward Sapir also gives an account of the relationship boldt maintained that the speaking human being was the
