Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document In his analysis of Hopi semantics in 1940, Benjamin Lee Whorf, a noted linguist, spoke of the language in terms of what he called “linguistic relativity,” a phrase used to refer to Hopi as a language clearly differentiated from English, for example, in the “language-particular” aspect of its semantic structure. This concept, challenged by the bolder question of whether or not there exists for all natural languages a shared semantic core that is language-universal rather than language-particular, is the main thrust of discussion in this source. The author's examination of the above hypothesis involves a detailed study of Hopi grammatical elements and their integration into the Whorfian scheme of semantic analysis.
