It is apparent that human language not only plays an important role of a medium which transmits both external and internal human experiences to next generation, but also takes an integral part of culture which contains those human experiences shared by a constituent of a particular society. Thus, human languages vary with their sociocultural environments. Over the centuries, many researchers claimed that different languages have different features. This is called Linguistic determinism, which argues that the language determines one's way of thinking. According to this view, the langauge affects the way one experiences and understands the world, and as a result, it constructs one's way of thinking, behaviour as well as the world view. Linguistic determinism has come up as a theoretical foundation supporting correlation between language and culture. Linguistic determinism has its origin in Humboldt's "Weltanshaung"--language identifies with thought--which is based on Herder's philosophy of language. Later, in the process of generalizaing the results of specific research and penetrating observation about culture and langauge of an Indian tribe, Sapir demonstrated Herder's and Humboldt's idea. Under the influence of Sapir, Whorf formed a frame of language determinism.
