At the age of 17 he began to keep a copious diary in which he recorded his thoughts and dreams. He was particularly good at the job and was highly commended by his employers.
His job required him to travel to production facilities throughout New England to be inspected. One anecdote describes him arriving at a chemical plant in which he was denied access by the director because he would not allow anyone to see the production procedure which was a trade secret.
Having been told what the plant produced, Whorf wrote a chemical formula on a piece of paper, saying to the director: The surprised director asked Whorf how he knew about the secret procedure, and he simply answered: Another famous anecdote from his job was used by Whorf to argue that language use affects habitual behavior.
Whorf argued that by habitually speaking of the vapor-filled drums as empty and by extension as inert, the workers were oblivious to the risk posed by smoking near the "empty drums".

Carrollwho later went on to study psychology under B. He began studying the Nahuatl language inand later, beginning inhe studied the collections of Maya hieroglyphic texts.
Quickly becoming conversant with the materials, he began a scholarly dialog with Mesoamericanists such as Alfred Tozzerthe Maya archaeologist at Harvard Universityand Herbert J.
Spinden of the Brooklyn Museum. He also began to study the comparative linguistics of the Uto-Aztecan language familywhich Edward Sapir had recently demonstrated to be a linguistic family. In addition to Nahuatl, Whorf studied the Piman and Tepecano languageswhile in close correspondence with linguist J.
Whorf considered using the money to travel to Mexico to procure Aztec manuscripts for the Watkinson library, but Tozzer suggested he spend the time in Mexico documenting modern Nahuatl dialects. Before leaving Whorf presented the paper "Stem series in Maya" at the Linguistic Society of America conference, in which he argued that in the Mayan languages syllables carry symbolic content.
Whorf had met Sapir, the leading US linguist of the day, at professional conferences, and in Sapir came to Yale from the University of Chicago to take a position as Professor of Anthropology.
Sapir replied stating that it "should by all means be published";  however, it was not until that it was prepared for publication by Lyle Campbell and Frances Karttunen.
He enrolled in a program of graduate studies, nominally working towards a PhD in linguistics, but he never actually attempted to obtain a degree, satisfying himself with participating in the intellectual community around Sapir. Trager and Charles F. In this view, proper perception could only be accomplished through formal logics.
During his stay at Yale, Whorf acquired this current of thought partly from Sapir and partly through his own readings of Russell and Ogden and Richards. Work on Hopi and descriptive linguistics[ edit ] Sapir also encouraged Whorf to continue his work on the historical and descriptive linguistics of Uto-Aztecan.
Whorf published several articles on that topic in this period, some of them with G. Trager, who had become his close friend. Whorf took a special interest in the Hopi language and started working with Ernest Naquayouma, a speaker of Hopi from Toreva village living in ManhattanNew York. Whorf credited Naquayouma as the source of most of his information on the Hopi language, although in he took a short field trip to the village of Mishongnovi, on the Second Mesa of the Hopi Reservation in Arizona.
InYale awarded him the Sterling Fellowship. After an operation for cancer he fell into an unproductive period. It was in the writings of his last two years that he laid out the research program of Linguistic relativity. He was also invited to contribute an article to a theosophical journal, Theosophist, published in MadrasIndiafor which he wrote "Language, Mind and Reality".
He particularly criticized the Indo-European languages for promoting a mistaken essentialist world view, which had been disproved by advances in the sciences, whereas he suggested that other languages dedicated more attention to processes and dynamics rather than stable essences. Trager was appointed as curator of his unpublished manuscripts.The Online Writing Lab (OWL) at Purdue University houses writing resources and instructional material, and we provide these as a free service of the Writing Lab at Purdue.
