This has to be one of the most ignorant tweets I’ve seen:
Linguists will recognise that @UKIP subscribe (presumably unknowingly) to a radical version of the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis. It’s not convincing. Though it’s trivially true that language & culture are linked, it’s not true that language determines the way speakers see the world.

Culture and language are linked only trivially, eh? Where to even begin?
It’s funny how little the metropolitcan elites actually know about the world around them, despite their supposed global outlook.
