Story of Your Life

Here's an online copy of one of my favourite modern SF stories: Ted Chiang's Story of Your Life (also here). It's a novella, about aliens whose perception of time is different from ours, a difference that affects their writing system, as well as the concepts of physics that they find basic. Which are not mass, velocity and force.
