Abstract

As Skinner acknowledged, the behavior of the listener merits further analysis. This analysis is still pending. Such analysis is important to the extent that listener behaviors (1) come under control of distinct antecedent verbal stimuli (2) are maintained by distinct consequences, and (3) shape and maintain the behavior of the speaker. This presentation will provide a behavioral account of the listener repertoire traditionally referred to as receptive language.
