This website is quite nice... got me thinking about how higher primates
like Koko who know sign language use syntax and semantics.
IIRC I remember that - on average, albeit small -a full-grown chimpanzee
who knows ASL has about the same level of linguistic skills as a 3-4 year old
"One thing foreigners, computers, & poets
have in common is that they make
unexpected linguistic associations." - Jasia Reichardt
She didn't mention gorillas or chimps...
