Women, Fire and Dangerous Things by George Lakoff PDF Book Review

This book also provides several detailed conceptual “case studies,” which aptly bring out the richness of the English language, and Whorfian-type examinations of the way different cultures view the world as exemplified in their language. In short, this book is useful in bringing to consciousness much of the linguistic/conceptual baggage we carry unconsciously from the past, and which we need to re-evaluate in a very different present.
