The hypothesis of linguistic relativity , part of relativism , also known as the Sapir—Whorf hypothesis , or Whorfianism is a principle claiming that the structure of a language affects its speakers' world view or cognition , and thus people's perceptions are relative to their spoken language. During World War II this claimed principle was used to advance nationalistic views by Nazi Germany, claiming their intellectual superiority over others  , but has been reexamined by scholars since the late 's and on, aiming to avoid the context of racism, nationalism, or a hierarchy of intellectual capabilities which had previously surrounded the theory. The principle is often defined in one of two versions: the strong hypothesis , which was held by some of the early linguists before WWII  , and the weak hypothesis , mostly held by some of the modern linguists . The principle had been accepted and then abandoned by linguists during the early 20th century following the changing perceptions of social acceptance for the other especially after World War II. The term "Sapir—Whorf hypothesis" is considered a misnomer by linguists for several reasons: Edward Sapir and Benjamin Lee Whorf never co-authored any works, and never stated their ideas in terms of a hypothesis. The distinction between a weak and a strong version of this hypothesis is also a later invention; Sapir and Whorf never set up such a dichotomy, although often in their writings and in their views of this relativity principle are phrased in stronger or weaker terms.

Whether in libraries , policing or other settings, volunteers as incompetent amateurs is a common position of unions and others. We need to stop this thinking. Anytime we encounter such views we need to start actively challenging them. Such a man must love the toils of the work more than any other man can love the rewards of it.
