Different language categories result in different ways of thinking. This research aims at analyzing the verbal categories of Tae’ language and the pertinent cognitive models of Luwu People. It is an attempt to have a philosophical understanding of Tae’ language as one of the local languages in South Sulawesi. This research used the descriptive-qualitative method. The data of the research were obtained from native speakers of Tae’ language in Larompong District, Luwu Regency. The data were gathered through interviews with recording and note-taking techniques. The data were then transcribed and translated into English. The data were analyzed using the categories of Hopi language by Whorf and the theories of cognitive psychology by Sternberg, namely the theories of perception and memory. Tae’ language has several verbal categories of assertion, mode, status, and modality. The categories reveal the complexity of constructive perception of Luwu people and their high use of memory.
