The main reason for choosing the Navajo language for the second case study of the Ethnophysiography Project was the superficial resemblance of Navajo country, semi-arid with many exposed rock formations, to Yindjibarndi landscapes. This holds promise for comparing sets of terms for similar landscape features between languages of vastly different origins. In addition to the ethnophysiography case studies described in this chapter, the authors have also reviewed a number of similar studies, especially those carried out by the Language and Cognition Group at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, Nijmegen (Burenhult 2008a).
