This could be interesting, for those who have time in the middle of
the day on Friday.

Lera Boroditsky is a young academic star who is probably best known
for her empirical results that support the previously discredited
Sapir-Whorf hypothesis (that language shapes perceptions of reality).

I've only just glanced at the paper, but it seems that to determine what exactly her results imply about the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis you need to throw in the degree of synaptic plasticity (and also specify exactly what you mean by the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis, e.g., the weak or strong version).?
