My husband and I were discussing how language and culture affect each other. We could think of many valid (we
think) examples of how culture affects language but could not think of any specific examples of how culture is
affected by language.

Are we wrong in thinking that culture can be affected by language? Can anyone offer any ideas, thoughts, or
examples of this concept?

Thanks in advance.
