Social cognition â€“ the capacity to represent and reason about agents and actions in our social universe â€“ is shaped in quite distinct ways by different languages. This project will carry out the first systematic study of the diverse engineering solutions the worldâ€™s languages have evolved for this complex task. Through a broad world-wide sample plus in-depth research on 20 languages of the Pacific Rim, it will build an integrated cross-linguistic model of how social cognition is supported by language, shaping and being shaped by the cultures of its speakers against a background of universal human cognitive abilities.
