Uh, Jay, my initial reaction is: proceed with caution. There could be charlatans afoot.
My next reaction is:
Ah, good, Whorf is back! Whenever anyone cites Whorf, it tells me that they are a popularist, not serious. Peel the skins from the onion: first peel is Whorf. Next peel: Wittengenstein! Third peel: some other,
let’s vote! What’s at the core of the onion?
Arbitrary ontology is not at the core of the onion. Arbitrary semantics is not there either.
