Cognition and language

Can our language determine how we think? Or is it thought that determines our language? Over the years, research has tried to solve these types of questions, in order to find out the influence that language has on our thinking in different cultures and vice versa. Overall, studies show evidence towards the influence of language on our cognitive system, but not in a strict way. Likewise, our thinking influences our language, even in the expression of emotions, but in the same way, it can be built without language.
