The present study aimed at investigating the underlying relationship between language and thought through the detailed qualitative analysis of interviews with 10 language teachers on issues pertaining to home culture attachment and world Englishes. As a result, being seriously challenged by the interviewer, significant alterations were noticed in the individual’s thoughts even to the point of producing contradictory ideas which highlighted the fact that language is more likely to shape thoughts in constructing reality. Conducting in-depth interviews, the very participants who had believed to be culturally attached to their home culture proved not only to be detached but also to assume a negative attitude about the application of their culture and the principles of world Englishes in their teaching methodology. Thus, the findings of the study seem to have further major implications for researchers to make rigorous empirical analysis of the record of natural interactions in place of the widespread use of interviews and surveys due to the tentative and inconsistent results they might produce.
