As I have come into contact with different languages in life I began to wonder whether some languages are more geared toward science, efficiency, literature or whatever.
It seems like certain countries are consistently good at certain things such as science, math, literature, innovation, creativity. It may be based on stereotype, but let's accept that in general the 'stereotypical' view is based on fairly accurate data. For instance, English certainly seems more limited in it's descriptive ability than Spanish - bad for English literature. Conversely, English seems more succinct than Spanish - good for giving instructions/commands.
I'll stop there because I am not interested in specific anecdotal instances but whether there are any studies or research on this general concept.
