Sapir- Whorf is a theory that suggests that the idioms and words particular to any language directly affect the way native speakers experience life. In Mayim Bialik's YouTube Posting "Girl Versus Woman" she discusses the effect on women of calling them "girls." Likewise, the careful choice of diction by an author in the first paragraph of a novel can set the mood irrevocably and powerfully. TEDxTheBenjaminSchool invites our speakers this year to consider both the importance of ideas worth spreading and the specific words we use to spread those ideas.
