The interaction between language and cognition has long fascinated researchers, and the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis proposes that language can influence how we perceive and think about the world. This study focuses on the domain of time and space perception, investigating how linguistic structures shape individuals' cognitive frameworks. By analyzing a diverse array of languages and employing a multidisciplinary approach that integrates linguistics, cognitive psychology, and cross-cultural analysis, we illuminate the extent to which language serves as a cognitive lens through which people experience and conceptualize these fundamental dimensions. Our findings illuminate the intricate interplay between linguistic categories, cognitive processes, and cultural factors, offering fresh insights into the complex relationship between language and perception.
