[Extract] This article investigates linguistic (and some anthropological) aspects of perception and cognition expressions in Korowai, a Papuan language of uncertain affiliation² spoken by around 4000 persons in the area between the upper Becking and Eilanden Rivers, and east of the headwaters of the Becking River, in the Digul Basin of West Papua, Indonesia. We limit our attention to seeing, hearing and thinking in Korowai, both for reasons of space and availability of data.
