Peculiarities of “atypical” aesthetic oblique effects
Abstract:The current paper offers a unique perspective of looking at oblique effects in cognition, language and aesthetics in a language where geometrical horizontal and vertical orientations are not considered cardinal and primary in nature. These oblique effects are termed as atypical in nature, offering a contrast to the other languages. In this attempt, a holistic framework is provided that is couched in terms of a single theory and explains effects from two separate fields in a similar manner. The proposed holistic framework provides special place for the influence of language on cognition (“class-3” theory). The paper closes with directions for future research that could potentially work towards providing further empirical evidence for strengthening the framework.
