    • ...Previous studies have demonstrated that a variety of stimuli can serve as contextual variables, including the background color of a response key (Thomas, 1985), the presence or absence of unimodal background stimuli (Otto, Cousens, & Rajewski, 1997; Otto & Poon, 2006; Schettino & Otto, 2001), tones of specific pitch (Hulse, Cynx, & Humpal, 1984), and internal states resulting from drug administration or food deprivation ...

    • ...It is now well established that if an animal learns a stimulus– response–reinforcer relationship in one context and is then tested in another context there is usually a lessening of stimulus control, and the same discriminative stimuli (SD) that reliably controlled the behavior in the first context will have less effect in the new context (e.g., Thomas 1985; Thomas et al. 1993)...

    • ...As for contextual control, it is a well-established nonlinguistic-conditioning phenomenon, especially in Pavlovian conditioning (see Balsam, 1985), so there is nothing especially new or linguistic about it. Furthermore, nonlinguistic Pavlovian (e.g., Hulse, Cynx, & Humpal, 1985) and operant (Thomas, 1985) generalization are context-dependent...
