70th GW International Scientist/Practitioner Forum
Topic: A Behavioral Interpretation of Grammar
A presentation by Dr. David Palmer, 01/01/2021
Dr. David Palmer presents an introductory, yet in-depth exploration into the foundational elements central to a behavioral interpretation of grammar. He gives a detailed dissection of the functions, syntax, and praxis of Skinner’s autoclitic frames and the roles of the content words that complete them. He also introduces rhetorical devices such as anaphora, explains the concepts of prosodic and contextual cues, and provides examples of how the variability and novelty of verbal communication can cause rapid shifts in stimulus control.
