Chris at The Lousy Linguist has an excellent post — "the largest whorfian study EVER! (and why it matters", 9/1/2010 — describing and discussing Jürgen Bohnemeyer, Sonja Eisenbeiss, and Bhuvana Narasimhan, "Ways to go: Methodological considerations in Whorfian studies on motion events", Essex Research Reports in Linguistics, 2006.

We'll come back to the Bohnemeyer et al. study in discussing the larger issue of neo-Whorfian work on spatial cognition and navigation. But for now, I recommend Chris's summary.
