15.2 Derived Stimulus Relations and Language Development

As you know, RFT is a contextual account of how humans learn to derive stimulus relations. And you’ve already learned how derived stimulus relations appear to be related to human language and cognition.

Derived Stimulus Relations:

Provide a model for understanding the symbolism and generativity of language

Are much easier to demonstrate with language-able humans than with non-human animals

Are correlated with verbal IQ and ability

Develop gradually and at about the same time as language
