You and your friends are sitting around on a Zoom call when one says:
I just saw this movie called Arrival, have you seen it?
Oh yeah! We saw it the other day! Its great, did you know its based on a novella? Our mentor made us read that too. That whole Sapir-Whorf thing was so wild huh?
Your friend says,
The whole what now? Wasnt it just a movie about how the aliens zapped that lady and made her see into the future?
How would you respond to this? You think to yourself, in order to explain this I need to do the following:
a) Define the Sapir-Whorf Hypothesis in your own words (1 sentences)
b) Explain the difference between written and spoken language for the humans and the heptapods (3-5 sentences)
c) Explain using both the novella and the movie what actually happened to Louise and her ability to see into the future (2-3 sentences)
