Abstract:

This paper presents a sea lions responses to an array of novel, or anomalous, combinatorial structures. These responses are used to construct a more complete definition of the types of learning abilities a sea lion used to attain the observed level of performance on a complex language-like task. Finally, we discuss the possible relationship of these learning skills to human language performance. Animal Language ResearchALR, Sea lion.
