I've had to sort of get back into thinking about this question recently-- I also find it really interesting, but when I was first getting into linguistics, /r/linguistics was totally populated (at least as far as I saw) with people who just totally derided linguistic relativism, so for a while I didn't think it was even a debate.

But now I'm hearing more and more people saying that it may not be that cut and dry, not to mention my own experience being semi-fluent in two languages now. So I guess I'm just thinking about language more in general.

More thoughts to come once I read the actual article :)
