Subject: Chimp Sign Boards
To: DARWIN-L@ukanaix.cc.ukans.edu


Would somebody please provide clarification on this for me:

In regards to the lack of "wh-" words on chimp sign boards, discussed by Anne
Loring et.al., doesn't this lack tell us more about the linguists that made the
boards than it does about the chimps that use them?

(By way of introduction, I am a graduate student in History of Science in
Madison Wisconsin.  I study 19th and 20th century physics and dabble in 19th
and 20th century biology.  I posted a message to the list many months ago, and
have been watching since).
