Under the influence of Edward Sapir , at Yale University , Whorf developed the concept of the equation of culture and language, which became known as the Whorf hypothesis , or the Sapir—Whorf hypothesis. Whorf maintained that the structure of a language tends to condition the ways in which a speaker of that language thinks. Hence, the structures of different languages lead the speakers of those languages to view the world in different ways. This hypothesis was originally put forward in the 18th century by the German scholars Johann Gottfried von Herder and Wilhelm von Humboldt. On the basis of his research and fieldwork on American Indian languages , he suggested, for example, that the way a people view time and punctuality may be influenced by the types of verbal tenses in their language. Whorf concluded that the formulation of ideas is part of or influenced by a particular grammar and differs as grammars differ.
