On Bever et al.'s central contention (see 40:2674), the linguistic evidence seems insufficient to show that the order of elements in the simple declarative sentence is a deformation of the order in the underlying string: The deformation appears to be imposed by the choice of a particular...
The development of theoretical systems in the social sciences has proceeded without sufficient attention to structural similarities between different universes of content. This has interfered with the discovery of isomorphic relationships between theories. In this paper the central variables of...
The range-frequency theory is concerned with category judgments, like "good" and "bad," or "large," "medium," and "small." A specific model derives the judgments from 2 basic assumptions: (a) The judge divides his psychological range into subranges whose relative sizes are independent of the...
Experiments critical of the effectiveness of variables of optical texture in evoking accurate judgments of slant are shown to be inappropriate, inadequate, or deficient. Experiments supporting linear perspective as a stimulus for slant are evaluated. The contention that perceived slant is a...
It has been recently suggested that the child's assimilation of the syntax of simple sentences can be attributed to a process of "contextual generalization" (see 38:1968) whereby information about the ordinal position of words and phrases is transferred from sentences the child has observed to...
This paper continues the discussion (see 38:1968; 40:2837) of issues raised by Braine's theory of "contextual generalization." The arguments for analyzing the English declarative as transformationally generated are discussed at length. Broader issues about the nature of confirmation of claims...
Recent research has shown that a simple form of adaptation to prism-produced displacement of the visual field consists primarily of a proprioceptive change––a change in the felt position of the arm seen through prisms––rather than a visual, motor, or visuomotor change. More complex sorts...
Flock's "A Possible Optical Basis for Monocular Slant Perception" (see ^W39^n:3407) is criticized as being a theory of stimuli rather than a theory of perception. To account for accurate monocular slant perception, the theory requires 9 assumptions, including the unproved ability of the eye to...
