According to the study by Fausey et al., language patterns can reflect one facet of cultural diversity across numerous countries. His group’s research focuses on the impact of language in molding individuals’ attentiveness to and recollection of words and phrases that are attributed to a particular meaning. In line with this thought, the proposed study aims to uncover the effects of the utilization of plural and singular grammar among Mandarin and English speakers. The study provides answers to this inquiry by having bilingual participants do a series of tasks to demonstrate the effects of their native language on memory and culture. The study aims to test whether some languages mark plurality in their quantifiers more than others, particularly English vs. Mandarin. The study also wants to determine if the usage of plurality or singularity in a language affects an individual’s memory and culture.
