Language vs thought

Cool - possible evidence that language shapes what we can think. This makes sense to me, and I kind of worry about a homogenisation of language, and our progress towards a single global language for this reason. English is ok, but it lacks so *much* too. Whenever I hear about words in other languages that it would take us a whole sentence to get across, still without getting the real "meaning" behind it, I always want to learn more languages... :)
