Please explain the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis in your own words. What do you think about the hypothesis? Do you accept it or reject it or are you somewhere in between? Can you think of any examples that illustrate how language and culture influence each other? (I think it’s a two-way street.)

Check this site for an explanation of this hypothesis.
