Words and Things is a book by Roger Brown offering an exploration of the degree to which languages are limited by the nature of human thought, and conversly, the degree to which the structure of specific languages influences the thinking of those who speak each language.

The implications of his insights are still being worked out in such disparate fields as linguistics, cognitive psychology, and anthropology.
