Finally, we come to birds. They also have failed to give any evidence of creativity. We might expect them to communicate about a multiplicity of situations, since the individual notes of a bird’s song can be combined in an indefinite number of ways. But as far as researchers can judge, birdsong deals animal s t h at t ry t o t al k above all with just two aspects of life: courting a mate, and the marking of territory (Nottebohm 1975; Marler 1991).

If some indi- t h e g reat aut o mat ic g rammat izat o r vidual were to restrict himself largely to a definite set of linguistic patterns, to a set of habitual responses to stimulus configurations .

Terrace’s critics point out that Nim was a highly disturbed young chimp. Due to frequent changes in those who taught him, Nim was insecure and maladjusted. They claim that his achievements are considerably lower than one might expect from a ‘normal’ animal. Others have argued that a computer analysis of chimp utterances that takes no account of the actual situation is bound to give an odd result. Negative results are to be expected if one chooses to simply: lump together four years’ worth of recorded utterances, remove all verbal and nonverbal context and grind the result through a computer to look for statistical regularities.
