Interesting stuff. Speaking of how things are different in different languages, I think everyone interested in language and/or philosophy should read Metaphors We Live By, by Mark Johnson and George Lakoff. The authors show how the ways we think and use language necessarily involve extensive schemes of metaphors. These metaphors are often different in different cultures, so the sorts of issues you bring up in this post should be considered par for the course in studying a foreign language.
